Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will remain around to above average through the weekend as overlapping, west-northwest swells arrive and move through. The west-northwest swell that arrived Thursday will hold today before easing into the weekend. The next pulse is forecast to arrive late tonight into Saturday, which will drive the surf well above advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores of the smaller islands. A gradual downward trend is anticipated Sunday into Monday. For the extended, expect an upward trend Tuesday through midweek, with the primary swell direction holding out of the west-northwest.
