Swell Summary

A small northwest swell has reached near shore buoys and will continue to fill today, peak tonight and Wednesday before slowly subsiding. A much larger, and rather long period, west- northwest swell is expected to fill in Thursday, peak Thursday night and early Friday before lowering gradually over the weekend. This swell will easily reach warning levels along most north and west facing shores during the peak of the swell. Small, mainly background south swells are expected through the week and on into the weekend. Short period choppy surf will gradually pick up today and remain elevated Wednesday into the weekend as trade winds strengthen over and upwind of the state.
