Swell Summary

Expect modest surf along east facing shores into Sunday. A northeast swell arriving late Sunday will build through early next week. This large swell combined with strengthening trade winds will likely cause surf to reach the High Surf Advisory criteria along east facing shores from Monday night into mid-week. A small northwest swell will maintain small surf along most north and west facing shores of the islands today. A small north swell arriving tonight will keep small surf along most north facing shores into this weekend. The northeast swell, which was mentioned earlier, will likely cause surf to increase along north facing shores early next week. Surf along south facing shores will continue to lower today as the current south swell fades. Surf will remain small along south facing shores this weekend.
