Swell Summary

A west-northwest swell will build today and peak tonight at near advisory levels for the north and west facing shores of Kauai. Additional west-northwest pulses are expected during the rest of the week but will be smaller in size. The combination of a northeast swell and strong trade winds will bring surf to near the threshold of a high surf advisory today along the east facing shores of Kauai and Oahu. This swell will be trending slowly down after tonight. Also, trade winds will be more moderate in strength during the second half of the week, resulting in smaller surf along the east facing shores.
