Swell Summary

A new long period south swell is just beginning to arrive at the NOAA buoys well south of Hawaii as of 3 AM, and is expected to gradually fill in locally this afternoon and tonight. This swell will bring an extended period of well above normal surf to south facing shores this week. Surf will likely hold at High Surf Advisory levels Monday through Wednesday, with the peak day expected to be on Tuesday. The swell will then gradually lower Thursday into next weekend. A series of small short period northwest swells are expected through the middle of the week, keeping surf just above typical summertime flat levels. Strong easterly trades over and upstream of the islands will continue to produce elevated short period surf along east facing shores through Monday. East shore surf will gradually trend downward and below the summertime average Tuesday through late next week as the trade winds over and upstream of the state relax.
