Swell Summary

Overlapping west-northwest swells will keep surf elevated along exposed north and west facing shores through the end of the week. As the current west-northwest swell slowly decreases this morning, yet another west-northwest swell builds into the region into Sunday. The High Surf Advisory (HSA) for exposed north and west facing shores continues through Sunday afternoon. Surf heights may briefly drop below advisory levels early this morning for some areas as the next swell slowly builds into the area. Long range guidance continues to show a third west-northwest swell building into the region on Tuesday and Wednesday, likely reaching HSA levels.
