Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will trend up through the day today as a new, west-northwest swell builds down the island chain. Surf is expected to peak tonight through Saturday above warning levels, followed by a gradual downward trend through the second half of the weekend. A new pulse expected out of the same direction Sunday night could be enough to keep the surf around advisory levels into Monday before lowering Tuesday into midweek. Surf along east facing shores may trend late in the weekend as an easterly swell arrives. This source should peak below the advisory level for east facing shores late Sunday through Monday. Surf along south facing shores exposed to large westerly swells wrapping in may trend up tonight into Saturday as the west-northwest swell peaks.
