Swell Summary

Little significant swell is anticipated through the week. Building trade winds will produce a gradual increase in short-period waves to east facing shores during the next couple of days, peaking near or slightly above seasonal average on Wednesday. A very small, long- period south swell may arrive tomorrow and fade by Thursday. A small, shorter- period south- southeast swell is expected over the next couple of days, with a larger pulse from the same direction possible this weekend.
