Swell Summary

The north-northeast swell will continue to elevate surf along north and east facing shores today and tonight. The High Surf Advisory (HSA) will continue for east facing shores through the afternoon. This HSA will likely be dropped on Saturday as the north-northeast swell diminishes. West facing shores can expect small to moderate surf starting Monday and persist through most of next week as a series of west-northwest swell builds into the region. Surf along most south facing shores will remain nearly flat this week.
