Outlook through Wednesday October 25:
Dangerous surf will continue along east facing shores through
Friday, then slowly trend down over the weekend. A long-period
north-northwest swell is expected to peak Friday, then ease into the
weekend. This will become reinforced by a larger northwest swell
Sunday through early next week. Heights may near advisory levels
along north and west facing shores late Sunday through Monday. Surf
is expected to build over the weekend along south facing shores as a
small to moderate south-southwest swell fills in.

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.
