Swell Summary

A large northwest swell is forecast to arrive this afternoon and pass down the island chain through Saturday. This swell will boost surf to High Surf Warning (HSW) levels along north and west- facing shorelines of the smaller islands. Surf should reach HSW heights early Saturday morning on Niihau, Kauai and Oahu, then exceed HSW levels along exposed shores of other islands down the chain through the day on Saturday. A smaller, reinforcing northwest swell Sunday will warrant either issuance of a High Surf Advisory (HSA) or continuation of the HSW. An HSA may need to be issued for west facing shores of the Big Island later. Surf will subside on Monday as these two swells pass. The next northwest swell may reach the islands and produce HSA level surf during the middle of next week.
