Swell Summary

Surf will be elevated, and close to High Surf Advisory levels, along north and west facing shores today, before gradually diminishing into Saturday. A moderate north-northwest swell on Sunday is expected to peak below High Surf Advisory levels, with a west-northwest swell possible around Wednesday. Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated in the short term due to a large area of fresh to strong trade winds upstream of the islands. A downward trend is expected over the weekend. Surf along south facing shores will trend up today, then remain elevated into next week as overlapping, long-period south- southwest swells arrive from the south Pacific.
