Swell Summary

The fading north swell will keep north and some west facing shores elevated through the day. The arrival of a couple of small, medium period north northwest swells will maintain very small north and west facing shore surf into the weekend. A small south wind wave swell recently generated by the passage of south-to-north moving rain bands will taper off to the west today. Above seasonal south facing shore surf will mainly impact the Oahu and Kauai southern coastlines today before falling back to winter norms for the rest of the week. East facing shore surf will maintain a rough chop the next several days. This will be the result of the diminishing north swell wrap along with a restrengthened mid week upstream trade fetch.
