Surf along east facing shores will slowly subside to average heights by the weekend, and to below average heights early next week as the trades weaken. An incoming small, medium period northwest swell is expected to peak late today into Saturday. A larger north swell is forecast to arrive Tuesday, and may produce advisory level surf along north facing shores by mid-week. The next small, long period south swell is forecast to reach the islands Wednesday and slowly subside through late next week.
