Swell Summary

Surf will remain small along north and west facing shores through today. A series of moderate, short period north swells will fill in on Friday and last through the weekend. This will increase surf along north facing shores through the weekend with an expected slow decline early next week. Surf from these north swells will remain well below high surf advisory levels.

East facing shore surf will also remain small through Thursday. North swell may wrap around into some eastern exposures and provide a small bump in east facing shoreline weekend surf.

South facing shore surf will stay small into early Friday as any remaining south southwest swell fades. Distant long period swell energy from the southern hemisphere arriving in a couple of days will provide a small boost to southern shoreline surf from Friday into the weekend.
