Hazards
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will rise to 15 to 20 feet through tonight, then lower to 12 to 18 feet Friday.
Surf along west facing shores will rise to 6 to 10 feet through tonight, then lower to 5 to 8 feet Friday.

Outlook
Outlook through Thursday November 21: The current north-northwest swell will gradually lower through Saturday. A larger northwest swell is expected to arrive Saturday, peak Saturday night near low-end warning levels, then lower Sunday and Monday. Another large northwest swell could bring another round of advisory or higher surf Wednesday into Thursday. No other significant swells are expected.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
