Surf Report/Forecast



 January 19-20, 2019

Forecast through next Saturday: 
The current north-northwest swell will gradually decline through the weekend, followed by a series of overlapping northwest swells during the new week ahead. The first swell will produce moderate surf below advisory levels Monday and Tuesday. The next swell will arrive Tuesday, resulting in surf well above advisory levels for north and west facing shores Tuesday night and Wednesday. As this swell declines Thursday, a large reinforcing northwest will build, possibly leading to warning level surf late Thursday and Friday. Swell from the east will produce a small bump in east shore surf this weekend, with another increase possible around Wednesday…no significant south swells are due.
