Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will gradually lower through this evening. A reinforcing northwest swell will likely spread across the area starting early Sunday morning. As a result, expect a bump in surf heights along exposed north and west facing shores from Sunday into Monday. This northwest swell will gradually lower from late Monday through Tuesday. Another reinforcing northwest swell is expected to reach the islands Wednesday, and persist through Thursday. Surf along east facing shores will remain small this weekend due to the relatively weak trades over and upstream of Hawaii. A slight increase in choppy surf along east facing shores will be possible early next week due to the strengthening northeast to east trade winds. Surf along south facing shores will remain nearly flat through this weekend.
