Swell Summary

Surf along north facing shores will gradually ease through the week as the swell direction shifts out of the north-northeast and lowers. Surf along east facing shores may trend up slightly Tuesday through midweek as the swell shifts out of the north-northeast. Otherwise, the small trend will continue due to a combo of light winds locally and limited upstream fetch.
