Swell Summary

The swell will hold tonight, then slowly lower through Monday. Another, similarly- sized, northwest pulse is expected to arrive Tuesday morning, with solid advisory level surf expected Tuesday into Wednesday. South shore surf will remain small, with a minimal boost today through the weekend. Small surf will continue along east facing shores into early next week.
