Swell Summary

The latest small, low period northwest swell is declining through the morning hours. A couple of very small surf days are in store for the northern and western coasts today through Tuesday. A couple of mid week small north and west-northwest swells are expected to hold small surf along north and west facing shores Wednesday and Thursday. No anticipated northerly swells equate to very small north and west shore surf Friday with nearly flat conditions continuing this weekend.

As trades ease up over and upstream of the islands, east facing shore surf will slowly lower through Wednesday. Eastern shore surf will slowly trend upward late in the week but flatten out and stay under high surf advisory levels through Saturday.

Surf along southern shores will continue to run near or slightly above seasonal normals the next few days. A series of overlapping south swells arriving from the South Pacific will maintain fun, early spring season waist to near head high surf.
