Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores will remain very small through Friday. Broad northwest Pacific low pressure located near the western Aleutians is forecast to track east toward the Date Line through the day. Model guidance shows an area of strong to gale force winds along its southern periphery that will be focused along a northwest (310-320 degree) great circle path directed at the islands. This small, short to medium period northwest swell is scheduled to arrive and boost north and west facing shore surf Saturday night into Sunday, hold on Monday and then drop off Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores should gradually trend up through the remainder of the week and weekend as fresh trades expand well upstream of the islands.

South facing shore surf will remain small through Friday but will pick up a bit over the weekend with the arrival of the next very small, long period south swell. Expect this trend to hold next week with another small, long period south swell possibly arriving Tuesday and holding through the middle of next week.
