Swell Summary

Surf along east facing shores will slowly lower through the weekend, but will hold close to normal levels. Surf will then slowly lower through the upcoming work week, with east shore surf dropping below normal during this time.

The current small northwest swell will keep some small surf in place along north and west facing shores through the weekend. A larger north-northwest swell is forecast to build late Tuesday and Tuesday night, then peak on Wednesday, with surf possibly nearing advisory levels along north facing shores. This swell will then gradually lower on Thursday, followed by a larger north to north- northeast swell Friday which appears to have a higher chance to bring advisory level surf to north facing shores.

Mainly background south swells will keep surf very small along south facing shores through early next week. The next small, long period south swell is forecast to reach the islands Tuesday and slowly lower through late next week.
