Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will trend up today through Saturday, then again next Tuesday through midweek as overlapping south- southwest swells move through. This will result in a long spell of above average surf for our south facing shores each day through next week. Peak surf heights should reach the advisory level late this afternoon through Saturday night with the first swell, then near the warning level late Tuesday through Wednesday as the second swell moves in and peaks. Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will ease today as a small north-northwest swell moves out. A similar northwest swell is expected by Sunday, which will linger into Monday before easing. Surf will remain small and choppy along east facing shores into next week.
