Swell Summary

Today's small northwest swell will slowly fade through tonight. A larger, short period north swell will arrive by Friday morning. This will pick up north facing shore surf this weekend with a gradual decline early next week. Surf from this northern swell will remain well below high surf advisory thresholds.

Surf will stay small along east facing shores through Thursday. The late week north swell may wrap around into some eastern exposures to provide a small increase to weekend surf along east facing coasts.

Small south facing shore surf will hold through Thursday. Distant long period swell energy from the southern hemisphere will provide a small bump to southern shoreline surf from Friday into the weekend.
