Swell Summary

A northwest swell will continue to diminish, remaining well below advisory levels through this morning. The next in a series of northwest swells will start to fill in this afternoon, then build quickly tonight. This will push surf heights into the advisory range for Saturday as the swell peaks, then slowly lowering through Monday. Another northwest swell is slated to arrive Tuesday morning with solid advisory conditions expected Tuesday into Wednesday. South shore surf will remain very small today, with a small boost possible tonight into the weekend. Small surf will continue along east facing shores into early next week.
