Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will remain up today, then ease through the second half of the weekend as a south swell moves out. Another southerly pulse early next week should be enough to keep the surf from going flat. Surf along north facing shores will trend up tonight into Sunday as a short-period, north swell arrives. This will linger into the start of the week as it shifts out of the north- northeast direction. An upward trend is expected by late Monday as a long-period, northwest swell arrives and builds down the island chain. Surf will near the advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores Tuesday through Wednesday as it peaks. Surf along east facing shores will remain rough today, then ease Sunday as the trades diminish. An upward trend will be possible by Monday as the northerly swell shifts out of the northeast.
