Swell Summary

Recent satellite derived winds depict an abundance of fresh to strong easterly trade winds occurring over and upstream of the chain this morning. These winds, along with a lingering small, low period north swell wrap, will maintain elevated, near-advisory level surf along many full eastern exposures throughout the day. A surface low over the west waters will disrupt island trade flow from today through Friday and lower east-facing shoreline surf the next couple of days. North swells will continue to fade through Thursday afternoon with only small north and west-facing shore surf through Friday. Larger, longer period northeast swells arriving this weekend will likely boost surf heights along north and east-facing shorelines back up to high surf advisory levels. Very small, background southwest to south swells will keep surf small along most southern-facing shores.
