The current north-northeast swell will slowly decrease today and continue over the weekend. As a result, the surf remains on many banks facing north and east during the rest of the working week. Most of the east-facing coasts will have a High Surf Advisory until this afternoon. The surf on the south coast stays small during the working week, although surfing heights may increase this weekend until early next week. It appears that surf along the north and west coasts will also see a small to moderate surge early next week.
