Swell Summary

Strong trade winds will cause surf to remain elevated along east- facing shores today and tonight. A High Surf Advisory for eastern exposures remains in effect through tonight. North swell will continue to decline through today. However, reinforcing north and northwest swells, in tandem with a trade wind wave/east swell wrap, will generate medium surf heights along most north and west- facing shores through today. Diminishing northerly swells will cause surf heights along north and west shore to decrease from Tuesday into next weekend. Small, long period south and southwest swells, along with some trade wrap, will provide enough background to support near seasonable surf along most south-facing shores.
