A small northwest swell will peak today, then subside through Wednesday night. A moderate, but shorter-period north swell expected Thursday may persist through next weekend. Lighter than normal trade winds will keep surf small along east facing shores through mid- week. The north swell will wrap in to some east facing shores later in the week. Swells from distant southern hemisphere storms will produce small to moderate surf along south facing shores.
