Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores will build into the weekend as a mix of medium period, north-northwest and long-period, west- northwest swells move through. Surf could near or reach the advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores of the smaller islands late Friday night into Saturday as the west-northwest swell peaks. A gradual downward trend is expected Sunday into next week. Surf along south facing shores will trend up into Friday as a long-period, south- southwest swell moves through, then ease over the weekend. Surf along east facing shores will remain small through Friday, then slightly rise by the end of the weekend due to the fresh trades returning locally and upstream. A downward trend along east facing shores will be likely once again next week due to the trades weakening.
