Swell Summary

The current south-southwest will gradually lower from tonight into the weekend. A larger southwest swell arriving Sunday will likely continue to build through early next week. A small, reinforcing west-northwest swell is expected to reach the islands later today and tonight. A slightly larger west-northwest swell may arrive this weekend, and persist through Tuesday. Surf along east facing shores will remain small into early next week due to the lighter trade winds locally and upstream of the islands.
