Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will remain up into next week as a series of small, west-northwest swells roll through. A downward trend is expected by or around midweek after peaking late Sunday through Monday. A similar trend will continue along south facing shores through the first half of next week. As the south swell that peaked a couple of days ago moves out by tonight, a small, long- period southwest swell arriving will keep the surf up through the weekend. The peak of this active spell is expected Tuesday through Wednesday as a larger south-southwest swell moves through. Surf along east facing shores will remain small each day through early next week, then potentially trend up by the second half.
