Significant Northwest Swell Expected to Arrive Sunday Leading to Potential Life-Threatening Surf

A significant northwest swell expected to arrive Sunday will lead to possible life-threatening surf along exposed north and west facing shores through Monday.

Strong northerly winds combined with peak monthly high tides just after midnight Sunday night will compound the situation, likely translating to significant beach erosion, periodic over-topping of nearby vulnerable coastal roadways, and property damage.

Currents due to harbor surges could become strong enough to damage boats and infrastructure due to jostling of docks.
