Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will pick up today through midweek as a late season south swell arrives. Expect a peak later today through Wednesday followed by a gradual downward trend Thursday as the swell moves out. Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will rise today as a small, northwest swell moves through. A downward trend is expected tonight into Wednesday. A larger north-northwest swell is expected Thursday night through Saturday that will lead to building surf along exposed north and west facing shores. Surf associated with this swell should peak below the advisory levels late Friday into Friday night, then gradually lower by the end of the weekend.
