Swell Summary

Trade wind-driven rough seas will maintain high surf along east- facing shores for another couple of days. Although east swell is subtly lowering, these swells in tandem with easterly wind waves will continue to justify the ongoing High Surf Advisory (HSA) for the east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island. Areawide trades will remain strong to near gale force magnitudes within the windier channels and bays through Tuesday. The HSA will be in effect to account for greater than 8 foot surf heights along most eastern exposures through Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.

Surf will remain below HSA criteria on all other shores through much of the week. Sunday's small, moderate period northwest swells are on the decline today and Tuesday. A larger, long period northwest swell arriving late Wednesday will lift recent well below average north and west-facing shoreline surf back to near advisory levels Thursday and Friday. These swells will shift more north and decline through next weekend. Surf along south-facing shores will remain at or slightly above winter averages through Tuesday due to a combination of both small south-southwest swells and trade wind wave and swell wrap.
