Swell Summary

A north swell will produce elevate surf heights along exposed north facing shores today. This swell will slowly decrease through Sunday. The forerunners of the next northwest swell will arrive on Sunday, with overlapping northwest and north swells producing slightly elevated surf along north and west facing shores through Monday. Smaller surf remains in the forecast along north and west facing shores from Tuesday through Thursday. A bump in east shoreline surf will occur over the weekend as the trade wind swell increases. Surf will likely reach advisory levels along exposed east facing shores on Tuesday and Wednesday. Background south swells will provide small surf to south facing shores through Thursday.
