...HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH FACING SHORES...

Surf along north facing shores will be 6 to 10 feet tonight, rising
to 18 to 22 feet Sunday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Sunday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 6 feet through Sunday, with
locally higher sets along shores exposed to north swell.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Sunday.

Outlook through Saturday November 25:
Advisory-level surf will be likely on Monday and may hold into
Tuesday along north facing shores before trending down into midweek.
Surf along north facing shores will quickly trend back up and near
warning levels once again through the second half of the week as
another large north swell fills in and impacts the area. Small
south-southwest swells will continue to generate small surf along
south facing shores into next week. Surf along east facing shores
will trend up and become rough through the second half of the
upcoming week and into the  weekend as strong trades return.

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.
