Synopsis: A low, long period south swell will build today through this weekend. This will result in waves breaking further from the coast than normal for this time of the year, increasing the size of the surf zone. This could also result in problematic bar conditions today through Sunday, especially for mariners with little experience in such conditions. Relatively light winds and low seas are otherwise expected on the open ocean this weekend. The low seas and weak winds will continue into the early portion of next week.
