...HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES...

Surf along north facing shores will be 6 to 10 feet tonight, then lower
to 4 to 7 feet Tuesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 4 to 7 feet tonight, then
lower to 3 to 5 feet Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet tonight,
building to 7 to 10 feet Tuesday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 feet or less through
Tuesday.

Outlook through Monday February 26:
A long period northwest swell arriving Tuesday night and peaking
Wednesday may produce surf approaching the advisory level on north
and west facing shores. This swell will gradually subside Thursday,
but another reinforcing northwest swell will move through Thursday
night and Friday before fading on Saturday. Short-period east swell
will continue to produce surf near advisory levels on east facing
shores Wednesday and Thursday, with the swell and surf building
further on those shores Friday into the weekend.

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.
