Swell Summary

Moderate west-northwest swell will continue through tomorrow, maintaining moderate surf along exposed north and west facing shores. A large, long-period northwest swell is expected to arrive tomorrow night, peak Wednesday night, and then slowly diminish through Friday. This will likely result in a multi-day High Surf Advisory for most north and west facing shores, potentially including the Big Island's Kona coast.

Out-of-season south swell will build over the next 24 to 48 hours, with max surf heights on Wednesday getting to the point that a High Surf Advisory may be required for south facing shores. Rough surf along east facing shores is expected late in the week as north winds become quite strong, likely requiring a high surf advisory.
