Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores should remain well below advisory levels today, as the incoming north-northwest swell appears to be a late arriver. This new north-northwest swell is expected to build tonight, with surf possibly reaching High Surf Advisory levels by daybreak Monday. If surf fails to reach advisory levels tonight, surf should quickly rise to advisory levels along exposed north and west facing shores Monday morning, then hold at advisory levels through Tuesday. A new larger long-period north- northwest swell is forecast to build Tuesday night, and be reinforced by another large north-northwest swell Wednesday night and Thursday. The combination of these swells may produce warning level surf along exposed north and west facing shores Wednesday through Thursday. This latter north-northwest swell will then lower Friday through next weekend, with surf forecast to drop below advisory levels by Friday night.

Trade wind swell will be on the decline over the next several days as the trades ease, keeping east shore surf on the small side through much of the week. South shore surf will remain small through the coming week as well.
