Swell Summary

The current north-northeast swell will hold fairly steady through Wednesday, then slowly decline Thursday through the weekend. This will keep surf along north and east facing shores elevated through the work week, before surf drops to near or slightly below normal levels this weekend. South shore surf will remain small through the work week, with mainly background south swells moving through. A larger long-period south swell is expected to give surf a boost over the weekend into early next week.
