Swell Summary

A giant northwest swell will arrive today, with the peak of the swell occurring on Kauai around late morning, on Oahu shortly after mid- day, and mid- to late- afternoon on Maui. Exposed north and west facing shores of the Big Island will see increased surf late today, peaking overnight. The swell will gradually diminish Sunday and Sunday night, but a new northwest swell arriving into Monday will likely push surf to warning levels once again, with peak surf heights lower than today's swell. A smaller northwest swell is possible around the middle of next week.
