Swell Summary

Surf along north facing shores will remain small today. An upward trend in surf is expected tonight into Friday along exposed north and west facing shores of the smaller islands with the arrival of a couple of 6 to 8-foot, medium-period, north-northwest swells. Guidance depicts surf peaking late Friday into Saturday, then briefly lowering Sunday, before rising again Sunday through Monday night with the second, slightly larger swell. Surf is not expected to reach advisory level with these swells, due to their relatively smaller period.

South shore surf will gradually decline today as the swell dampens out. East shore surf will remain small through the week due to the lighter winds over and upstream of the islands.
