Swell Summary

A large northwest swell spreading down the island chain will likely produce warning level surf along most north and west facing shores of the islands from later today into Sunday. This swell will gradually lower from Sunday night into Monday. Another potentially larger northwest swell arriving Monday night will likely bring warning level surf through Tuesday. As that northwest swell declines Wednesday, yet another large northwest swell will arrive late Wednesday night with warning level surf on Thursday.
