Swell Summary

A new northwest swell is expected to build today and peak Tuesday, when the direction will shift out of the north- northwest. North shore surf may top High Surf Advisory (HSA) levels tonight and Tuesday, followed by a gradual decline Wednesday into next weekend. Background south shore surf will be interrupted by a small south-southwest swell midweek. East shore surf will remain well below the seasonal average through today. Wind swell will ramp up as the trade winds increase Tuesday and Wednesday, but the islands will lie near the eastern edge of the fetch of strong trade winds, which will limit the growth of the local seas. Latest guidance shows the rough trade wind swell could push east shore surf on Kauai near the HSA threshold.
