Swell Summary

A long-period north-northwest swell will peak in island waters this morning, with resultant surf remaining below High Surf Advisory levels. Today's peak will be followed by diminishing surf through Tuesday, although a short-period northeast swell is expected to arrive the next couple of days. Combined with increased trade winds near and upstream of the islands, an increase in choppy surf along windward shorelines is anticipated. Otherwise, relatively small northwest swells will prevail until the end of the week. The potential exists for a very large north-northwest swell to arrive next weekend.
