Swell Summary

A small south swell will likely peak tonight, then lower slowly into Tuesday. A series of small south and southeast swells will continue to keep south shore surf from going flat through the end of the week. Surf will continue to diminish along east facing shores with nearly flat conditions expected by Monday night. Surf along east facing shores will gradually increase later this week as trade winds strengthen. No other significant swells are expected.
