Swell Summary

The current modest northwest swell will persist through this evening. A new north-northwest swell will spread across the area starting late tonight. By late Friday, expect the arrival of a very large, medium period north-northwest swell, which will likely peak on Saturday. Surf heights produced by this swell are forecast to be above the High Surf Warning thresholds along most exposed north and west facing shores of the islands into early next week. Surf will remain minimal along most east facing shores, except for localized wrap of the large north-northwest swell into select beaches. Choppy surf may increase slightly along south facing shores starting later this weekend due to increasing southerly winds, as well as a series of small background south and southeast swells.
