Outlook through Sunday March 25:
Small northwest and north swells will continue through the next
couple of days. Surf will stay below advisory levels along north and
west facing shores. A larger and longer period northeast swell will
arrive Wednesday and peak Wednesday night into Thursday. Surf along
north and east facing shores will reach advisory level surf with
this swell, possibly warning level heights for east facing shores at
the peak.  Surf along south facing shores should see above null
conditions for a  next few days with small long period background
swells moving through.

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.
