Swell Summary

A large west-northwest swell will gradually decline into Monday and then hold through Tuesday. A High Surf Advisory (HSA) remains in effect for exposed north and west facing shores. The HSA will hold today before dropping below advisory levels later tonight into Monday. Swell directions will shift from 310 degrees today, to 320 degrees Monday, and to 330 degrees by Tuesday. The forerunners of the next large, long period, northwest swell will likely arrive late Wednesday night, quickly building to HSA levels and possibly exceeding HSW thresholds by Thursday.

Surf heights will remain small along east facing shores with background surf heights along south facing shores expected to last through the week.
