Swell Summary

A series of overlapping northwest swells expected through next week will keep the surf up each day for exposed north and west facing shores. Surf may briefly dip just below the advisory levels tonight through Sunday as the current northwest swell gradually eases. Advisory-level surf will likely return Sunday night through Tuesday as the next northwest swell arrives and moves through. A larger northwest swell expected around midweek may drive surf to warning levels for north and west facing shores. Surf along east facing shores will remain rough and near the advisory level through the weekend as the trades remain strong. A downward trend is anticipated next week as the trades weaken.
