Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will continue to lower through the day. A smaller northwest swell is on tap during the Tuesday through Wednesday time period. A much larger, and rather long period, northwest swell is expected to fill in Thursday, then peak Thursday night and early Friday before lowering gradually over the weekend. This swell will easily exceed advisory levels, and will likely reach low-end warning levels, during the peak of the swell. Small, mainly background south swells are expected through this weekend and on through most of next week. Short period choppy surf will remain small along east facing shores over the next couple of days, then pick up beginning around Wednesday and remain elevated into next weekend as trade winds strengthen over and upwind of the state.
