Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will continue to lower today as the swell that surged well above guidance Tuesday moves out. Expect the downward trend to continue into Thursday, then pick up Thursday night through Saturday as overlapping west-northwest swells arrive and move through. Heights may exceed advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores Saturday, then dip below Sunday into early next week. Surf along east facing shores will trend up through the second half of the week as a small, easterly swell moves through. Surf along south facing shores will rise once again Thursday into Friday as a new, out-of-season, long-period southerly swell arrives. A similar southerly source will be possible early next week.
