Swell Summary

A long-period northwest swell will spread across the area through this evening, and will likely cause surf to peak near the High Surf Advisory criteria along most north facing shores later tonight or Sunday morning. This swell will gradually lower from late Sunday through early next week. A moderate, long-period south swell arriving today is expected to cause surf to gradually increase slightly above the seasonal average along most south facing shores this weekend. This south swell will gradually lower early next week. The locally strong trade winds in the vicinity of, and upstream of the islands will maintain moderate, choppy surf along most east facing shores.
