Swell Summary

Relatively small northeast swells will persist into Wednesday. A larger, long-period northwest swell will gradually build today and tonight, leading to increasing surf along exposed north and west facing shores. This swell will likely not reach its peak until Wednesday as it turns toward the north-northwest, but peak surf heights are expected to remain below High Surf Advisory heights. Another long- period northwest swell is expected at the end of the week, with peak surf heights approaching High Surf Advisory. A small, long-period south swell is expected the next couple of days, providing a bit of surf to south facing shores. Short-period wind waves will increase toward the end of the week, leading to increasing choppy surf along east facing shores into the weekend.
