Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will hold today well below advisory levels, then ease by tonight as a medium-period northwest swell moves through. A significant west-northwest swell will arrive Thursday and continue into the weekend before easing. Surf associated with this source will reach advisory levels Thursday afternoon for Kauai and Oahu, then surge well above warning levels for exposed north and west facing shores statewide Thursday night through Saturday as it peaks and moves through. Heights should dip to advisory levels by Sunday on the back-end of the swell. Surf along east facing shores will remain small and choppy due to the trades that have returned.
