Outlook through Tuesday October 24:
Elevated rough surf will continue along east facing shores through
mid-week. Surf will gradually lower along east facing shores from
Friday through the weekend. The current south swell will slowly
subside through Wednesday. Small southwest and south-southwest swells
will maintain small background surf along south facing shores this
weekend. A new long-period north-northwest swell arriving Thursday
will produce moderate-sized surf along north and west facing shores
from late Thursday through Friday. This swell will gradually lower
this weekend. A slightly larger northwest swell may arrive late
Sunday, and continue into early next week.

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.
