Swell Summary

Surf along north facing shores will remain small through the first half of today from a lingering north swell. Surf will begin to trend up this evening for north and west facing shores of Kauai and Oahu as a new, long-period, north-northwest swell arrives. Heights could reach advisory levels for north and west facing shores of Kauai and Oahu late tonight, then along north facing shores of Maui through the day Sunday, as the swell builds down the island chain. Swell height will hold through Monday, as the direction trends more northerly. Another large northwest swell is expected to begin filling in Monday night and peak Tuesday. Guidance is showing the swell peaking in the 10 to 12 foot, 14 to 16 second range. If this holds, this will likely warrant a High Surf Warning for both north and west facing shores of the smaller islands.

The background small south swell will continue to lower through the weekend. A small, but longer period south swell is expected to arrive Wednesday. Surf along east facing shores will remain near flat levels, with the exception being along east facing shores exposed to northerly swell.
