Swell Summary

An incoming west-northwest swell has arrived in the islands early this morning and will continue to build through the day today, then hold steady into Wednesday. This swell will bring warning level surf to exposed shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island, and advisory level surf to Molokai and Maui. The swell is expected to lower Wednesday night through Friday, but could linger at advisory levels into Wednesday night. A new northwest swell is forecast to arrive Friday night, peak below advisory levels Saturday, then lower Saturday night through early next week.

An out of season south swell will will give south shore surf a boost up close to the summertime average today through Thursday. This swell will lower Thursday night and Friday with surf returning to mainly background levels over the weekend into early next week. East shore surf will remain smaller than normal through Wednesday, then rise close to the seasonal average Thursday through the weekend.
