Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will gradually decline through Wednesday and veer toward the north-northwest. The next northwest swell is forecast to arrive Wednesday night, followed by another northwest swell on Friday. Both are expected to be shorter period, small to moderate swells producing surf below the High Surf Advisory threshold. A large northwest swell is possible during the first half of next week. South facing shores are forecast to have small, background swells through the week. East facing shores will have small, choppy surf through the week due to the general weakness of the trades upwind from the state.
