Swell Summary

A series of long period south and southwest swells will keep surf along south facing shores near to slightly above the September average through Thursday. South shore surf will then gradually lower through the weekend into early next week. Small surf will prevail on north facing shores through most of the week, with a small bump from a northwest swell possible this weekend. East shore surf will remain well below normal through Wednesday. As trade winds ramp up Thursday through Saturday, surf along east facing shores will become rough and rise to near seasonal levels, before lowering gradually Sunday into early next week.
