Swell Summary

The forerunners from a new long-period south swell (190 degrees) are expected to arrive later this afternoon. This swell will build through Thursday night and peak on Friday and Saturday. This south swell will slowly lower on Sunday and will be reinforced by a smaller south swell by Monday.

Modest, choppy surf along east facing shores will begin to ease as the trades weaken. Surf heights will gradually increase along east facing shores from Saturday into early next week as the trades strengthen. Finally, nearly flat summertime conditions will persist along most north facing shores through early next week.
