Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will slowly lower today and tonight, with surf heights expected to remain below advisory thresholds. A new re-inforcing northwest swell will arrive Wednesday and may push surf heights back up close to low end advisory levels along exposed north and west facing shores through early Thursday. This swell will lower later Thursday, with surf expected to be well below seasonal levels on Friday. The next in a series of northwest swells should arrive Friday night and may once again push surf up into the advisory range along north and west facing shores late Saturday through early Sunday with a downward trend then expected through early next week.

East shore surf will remain a bit elevated today as the current small east swell slowly fades. The downward trend will continue on Wednesday, with very small surf then expected for east facing shores Thursday through the weekend, with perhaps a slight boost early next week.

South shore surf will remain very small through Thursday, with a small boost possible Friday through the weekend as a small south swell arrives.
