Swell Summary

A new northwest swell will steadily fill in throughout the day today. The swell will then get a reinforcement Tuesday into Wednesday with surf heights possibly reaching low end advisory levels. This swell will then lower gradually through the remainder of the week. A new long period south swell will gradually fill in today and will be followed by an even larger south swell Tuesday into Wednesday. This swell may be large enough for surf heights to reach low end advisory levels during its peak Wednesday and Thursday. This swell will then lower gradually through the remainder of the week. Trade winds over and upwind of the state will continue to produce short period choppy surf along east facing shores this week. Surf heights along east facing shores are expected to remain below advisory levels.
