 December 6-7, 2021

Forecast through next Monday
: The large north swell will gradually decline, allowing surf along north facing shores to fall below High Surf Warning levels overnight and drop below High Surf Advisory levels by Monday night. The north swell will fade by Wednesday, with small north shore surf prevailing into next weekend. Increasing southerly winds will produce a period of rough surf along south shores into Monday, followed by a small bump in south swell Wednesday into Friday. East facing shore will also have moderate level surf through Monday, mainly due to wrapping north swell. Rough, short-period trade wind swell will provide an increase for east shore surf Wednesday…as trade winds return.
