Swell Summary

The current northwest swell peaked yesterday and has continued to lower. Surf is now below advisory level along north facing shores. The swell will continue a slow decline through Monday. A similarly-sized northwest swell will arrive Tuesday, followed by another Friday, both likely producing advisory level surf for north, and potentially west, facing shores. A small south-southwest swell will drop later today, with minimal south shore surf by Tuesday. East shore surf will remain below the seasonal normal, though a slight increase is possible during the middle of the week with the boost in trades.
