Surf Report/Forecast



 September 27-28, 2020

Forecast through next Sun
daySurf along north facing shores will lower through early in the new week, as the first sizable swell of the season gradually fades. Another north-northwest swell will be possible around mid-week, that could drive surf heights toward advisory levels by Thursday. Surf along south facing shores will trend up as a new south-southwest swell fills in. Surf along east facing shores will remain small, then potentially rise as a small easterly swell from former tropical cyclone Lowell arrives early in the new week. The best potential for this will be over the eastern end of the state.
