ay: A large northwest swell arriving Tuesday will drive surf heights above warning levels along exposed north and west facing shores late Tuesday afternoon through Thursday. Significant beach erosion with water reaching vulnerable low-lying coastal roadways will be possible, especially early Wednesday morning around the high tide. A gradual downward trend is expected through the second half of the week, with surf potentially lowering below the advisory level for north and west facing shores Friday. Another significant swell is possible late this weekend and into early next week. Surf along east facing shores will trend down through the first half of the week as the trade winds diminish.
