Swell Summary

The strengthening trade winds will cause surf to increase along east facing shores. Expect a High Surf Advisory to be issued for most east facing shores starting tonight or Monday. A small north-northwest swell and a reinforcing north swell are expected to spread across the area later today and tonight. These swells will likely maintain medium surf heights along most north and west facing shores through Monday. As these north-northwest and north swells gradually diminish, expect relatively small surf along most north and west facing shores from Tuesday into next weekend. Small, long-period south-southwest swells will maintain small background surf along most south facing shores through Friday.
