Swell Summary

A gradually diminishing west-northwest swell will keep surf elevated, but below advisory-levels, along exposed north and west facing shores today, with wave heights slowly diminishing through Monday. Little additional swell energy from the northwest is expected through the upcoming week, and surf will remain below advisory levels along all shores. Although short-period surf along east facing shores will likely increase as trade winds around mid-week, a limited upstream fetch will keep surf below advisory levels. Small surf will persist along south facing shores.
