Swell Summary

Surf along many north and west facing shores will hold through the morning hours as the next northwest swell enters the far offshore waters today. There is moderate to high confidence that a 6 to 7 foot, medium period swell will fill in across the western and central islands later this afternoon through Friday morning. This swell will push Kauai's north and west facing shore surf up to Surf Advisory (SCA) thresholds Friday morning with O'ahu's north and west shores approaching SCA heights by Friday afternoon. A slightly larger northwest swell will arrive a day later Saturday. Smaller island north and west facing shore surf will likely exceed SCA levels this weekend with the passage of this secondary, reinforcing swell. East facing shore surf will trend up a little into the weekend as a small easterly swell originating from an upstream fresh to strong trade fetch moves in, along with some northwest wrap. Surf along south facing shores will receive a couple of small late week bumps from the arrival of very small, medium period southerly swells. In the extended, a moderate size, medium period swell will reach the western most islands next Wednesday and again push north and west facing shore surf back to near SCA levels.
