Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will produce elevated surf along most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands through this afternoon. This swell is forecast to gradually lower from tonight through early next week. A mix of small northwest swells will produce modest surf along most north and west facing shores during the middle of next week. The strong trade winds will cause surf to build along east facing shores, and it will likely remain elevated and rough through Sunday night. By early next week, the weakening trade winds will cause the surf to gradually lower along east facing shores. Background south swell energy will maintain small, near seasonal surf heights along most south facing shores.
