Swell Summary

A large, reinforcing northwest swell will produce elevated surf approaching the High Surf Warning thresholds along most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands from later today into Friday. Surf is expected to gradually lower along west facing shores of the Big Island by this evening. Yet another large northwest swell with elevated surf reaching the High Surf Advisory criteria is expected for most north and west facing shores from Saturday into Sunday. Elsewhere, besides some localized wrap of the northwest swell energy into the typical areas, small surf will continue along most east and south facing shores through this weekend.
