Swell Summary

The recently elevated east facing shore chop and background northeast wind wave swell will gradually subside into the weekend as a result of relatively weakened south to southeasterly winds. The first swell of the new year will be that of a moderate, medium period northwest swell. This swell will arrive tonight into early Sunday and then fade Monday. Next week's large northwest swell is timed to reach north and west facing shores sometime Wednesday. This swell has a good probability of generating high surf that will likely be within solid High Surf Advisory thresholds by Thursday, possibly nearing High Surf Warning heights. A large swell emanating from a late week gale low east of the Kuril Islands may produce high to XL surf next weekend.
