Swell Summary

North shore surf will be pumping during the next week, with series of large northwest swells moving through the area. The current northwest swell will hold steady below advisory thresholds today. A new large north-northwest swell will rapidly build from northwest to southeast down the island chain tonight, with warning level surf expected along exposed north and west facing shores tonight and Thursday. This swell will lower Thursday night and Friday, but surf will likely remain at advisory levels. An even larger northwest swell is then forecast to build Friday night, with surf expected to peak well above warning levels again on Saturday. This swell will lower Sunday and Sunday night, with yet another warning level swell due in early next week.

Surf along east facing shores will remain small through the week and over the weekend due to the lack of trades upstream of the state. Surf along south facing shores will remain small through the week, although a bit of a boost is expected from a small south-southwest swell today through Thursday.
