Swell Summary

Elevated surf will continue along the east facing shores today and possibly tonight from a combination of the north-northeast and locally generated trade wind swells. Both swells will hold at moderate levels over the weekend. But a boost in the east to southeast winds to fresh to strong Sunday through Monday may result in a slight rise in the surf to near advisory level along the east facing shores. A series of small to moderate west- northwest swells is expected bring some surf to the west facing shores next week. Surf will remain small along the south facing shores into next week.
