Swell Summary

A moderate south swell has arrived and has boosted surf on south facing shores into the low-end advisory range. Thus, a High Surf Advisory is in effect through tonight for south facing shores of all islands. As a reinforcing south swell moves up from the southern hemisphere and overlaps with weekend swells, surf will again be on the rise and may approach high-end advisory or low-end warning criteria by next Tuesday into Wednesday. A medium period northwest swell is expected to arrive by Sunday, holding into Monday. Surf along east facing shores will remain small and choppy through the weekend, though picking up by early next week as trades strengthen.
