Swell Summary

Surf along north facing shores will clean up today as the winds diminish and shift out of the east and a short-period, northerly swell arrives. This northerly pulse will linger into Monday as it shifts out of a north-northeast direction. A long-period, northwest swell will arrive by the end of the day Monday on Kauai, then along exposed north and west facing shores of the other islands Monday night into Tuesday. Surf associated with this source will peak Tuesday through Wednesday below the advisory levels for north and west facing shores. An upward trend will be possible for east facing shores on Monday as the northerly swell shifts out of the northeast. A small southerly swell arriving Monday will keep the surf along south facing shores from going flat through the first half of the week. For the second half of the week, a larger northwest swell expected Thursday night could drive surf heights to advisory levels for north and west facing shores Friday.
