Swell Summary

A series of overlapping long period south swells will maintain near seasonal levels through the forecast period. Small surf is expected along the north facing shores from a small north and northeast pulse. This northeast swell, lasting into the weekend, may help maintain small to moderate surf along exposed east facing shores. Otherwise, no significant swells are expected through early next week.
