Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will ease to around the advisory levels through the day as the west-northwest swell that peaked Saturday begins to move out. A new, west-northwest swell arriving later today, however, will support advisory-level surf continuing through tonight. Surf along east facing shores will rise today, peak tonight through Monday, then lower Tuesday through midweek as an easterly swell moves through.
