Swell Summary

A long-period south swell has arrived overnight, which has led to increasing surf along south facing shores. Expect this rising trend to continue early this morning, then linger through the rest of the week due to a similar reinforcement expected on Thursday. A downward trend is expected over the weekend as the swell moves out. In addition to the new south swell, moderate southerly winds expected later today through midweek will lead to choppy conditions for south facing shores. Although surf along east facing shores will lower with the loss of the trades, some residual easterly swell from upstream should produce small surf today before completely dropping off. A small northwest swell expected Thursday will lead to a rising trend along exposed north facing shores through Friday.
