Swell Summary

Surf heights will decrease to near summertime average heights along south facing shores as we head into the weekend. The forerunners from a new long-period south-southwest swell are expected to reach the islands starting Sunday. This swell will continue to increase, and will likely produce elevated surf along south facing shores from Monday into the middle of next week. A new small northwest swell may cause a slight increase in surf heights along most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands from later today through Saturday. This swell will gradually decline from Saturday night through Sunday. The gusty trade winds will cause choppy surf to gradually increase along east facing shores into early next week.
