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

Surf along north facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet today, rising to 5
to 8 feet Sunday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet today, rising to 3
to 5 feet Sunday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 7 to 10 feet today, dropping to
5 to 8 feet Sunday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 feet or less today, and 1 to
3 feet Sunday.

Outlook through Saturday January 27:
Surf will remain elevated along east facing shores through Sunday,
before dropping below the advisory level of 8 ft early in the week. A
small northwest swell is expected to arrive tonight, and then be
reinforced with a long period, moderate west-northwest swell Sunday
night. This swell will peak Monday night near advisory level, then
gradually lower through midweek. A small background swell from the
south will persist through the forecast period.

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.
