THE CURRENT WEST-NORTHWEST SWELL WILL GRADUALLY SUBSIDE THROUGH
MONDAY. SURF MAY REACH THE HIGH SURF WARNING THRESHOLD ALONG EAST
FACING SHORES EARLY NEXT WEEK...BUT THE TIMING AND SIZE OF THIS
SWELL REMAINS UNCERTAIN SINCE IT DEPENDS ON THE TRACK AND STRENGTH
OF HURRICANE IGNACIO AS IT APPROACHES THE ISLANDS. AN INCREASING
SOUTH SWELL IS ANTICIPATED TO ARRIVE THURSDAY WHICH COULD RISE
SIGNIFICANTLY FRIDAY.

SURF HEIGHTS ARE FORECAST HEIGHTS OF THE FACE OR FRONT OF WAVES. THE
SURF FORECAST IS BASED ON THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT...THE AVERAGE
HEIGHT OF THE ONE THIRD LARGEST WAVES...AT THE LOCATIONS OF THE
LARGEST BREAKERS. SOME WAVES MAY BE MORE THAN TWICE AS HIGH AS THE
SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT. EXPECT TO ENCOUNTER RIP CURRENTS IN OR NEAR
ANY SURF ZONE.
