Swell Summary

A moderate size, medium period north swell is arriving as this past weekend's north swell fades. This swell will push north facing shore surf heights back up to slightly over head high to double head high today and Tuesday. This swell is not expected to produce advisory level surf and will peak Tuesday with a Tuesday night into Wednesday decline. East facing shores with northern exposures will also be affected by this latest swell energy. A series of North Pacific gale to severe gale storms will initiate a couple of new north swells that will be focused along northwest to north great circle paths aimed at Hawaii. These swells should reach the local waters late Thursday into Friday and late Saturday into Sunday.

East facing shore surf will remain small and choppy through Monday. Weakening trades will lower these wind waves from Tuesday through the middle of the week. As previously mentioned, the lone exception will be along east facing shores that will be more exposed to incoming north swell energy.

South surf will be maintained by very low background south swell and short period, southeast trade wind wave energy. Surf along south facing shores will trend up by mid week with the arrival of a late season south to southwest swell Wednesday.
