, 2024

:  Small surf will persist across north facing shores through Saturday, with background energy from the northwest and north expected. An upward trend is expected late Saturday and Sunday as the arrival of a small long-period north-northwest swell coincides with a more significant pulse of medium-period northwest swell from the nearby surface low. Surf could approach low end High Surf Advisory levels Monday night and Tuesday. The swell will decline Wednesday and Thursday as it shifts out of the north-northwest. A small, long-period south-southwest swell will hold through the weekend, but southerly winds will lead to choppy conditions along southerly exposures. Another small pulse of south swell will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday. Surf along east facing shores will decline over the weekend as locally strong winds trend down and veer out of the south.
