to 4 feet Monday.

Outlook through Sunday December 24:
Advisory-level surf will be possible along north facing shores Tuesday
through midweek as a north swell fills in. A northwest swell is
possible Friday into next weekend that will lead to rising surf along
north and west facing shores. Surf associated with this source will
likely remain below advisory levels.

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.
