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

Surf along north facing shores will be 10 to 15 feet through
this afternoon, lowering to 9 to 12 feet tonight, then building
to 15 to 20 feet Wednesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 8 to 12 feet through this
afternoon, lowering to 8 to 10 feet tonight, then building to 10 to 15
feet Wednesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet today, rising to 3
to 5 feet Wednesday.

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

Outlook through Tuesday January 23:
The new northwest swell arriving tonight will subside and shift from
northwest to north by Thursday. A series of moderate northwest swells
from late this week through early next week will produce surf well
below the advisory threshold. Strong to near gale force trade winds
will likely bring advisory-level surf to east facing shores from
Wednesday through 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.
