Swell Summary

The current west-northwest will decline today and fade on Friday. No other significant northwest swells are expected through the middle of next week. A long period south swell will arrive late today, build tonight and Friday, then peak during the weekend. Advisory level surf remains a possibility Saturday into Sunday as this swell peaks locally. South shore surf will lower early next week, but a reinforcing south swell will likely keep surf above normal levels through the middle of next week. Trade winds will strengthen over and upstream of the islands during the next couple days, driving rough east shore surf above the October average by Friday, and possibly to advisory levels Saturday into early next week.
