Outlook through Saturday December 23:
A small northwest swell is expected to peak Sunday night into Monday
morning. Resulting surf is expected to remain below advisory level. A
larger north-northwest swell is forecast to arrive Tuesday, peak
Tuesday night, then lower late on Wednesday. Surf from this swell may
approach advisory levels. A larger north swell may impact the area
late next week. A small, long period south swell will arrive late
Monday and continue through Tuesday, causing a slight bump in surf
along south facing shores.

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.
