Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores will briefly ease by the end of the day today, then quickly rise tonight through Tuesday as a new, west-northwest swell arrives and builds down the island chain. Heights will climb above advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores through the day Tuesday as the swell peaks, then ease through midweek. Overlapping west-northwest swells Thursday night through the weekend will lead to the surf trending back up, potentially to advisory levels by Saturday. Surf along east facing shores will remain below average through Tuesday, then rise Wednesday through the second half of the week due to a combination of trades returning and a small easterly swell. Surf along south facing shores will hold today before dropping due to a small, out of season, south- southwest swell moving through. Another small, south-southwest swell arriving toward the end of the week is possible.
