Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will remain at summertime background levels through today, followed by a small pulse of south swell Sunday and Monday. A larger, long-lived south swell will arrive Thursday and may push south shore surf to the High Surf Advisory level next Friday and into the weekend.

East shore surf will fall from around seasonal heights to slightly below average this weekend, though some faint long-period swell from former Tropical Cyclone Estelle may appear. Short period trade wind swell will then build back to near average as elevated trade winds are expected to persist into next week. Typical, nearly flat summertime conditions will continue for north shores.
