Swell Summary

Surf along south facing shores will remain rough over the next couple of days due to a combination of strong southerly winds, heavy showers and storms, and a long-period south swell moving through. Conditions should clean up by Friday into the weekend as the winds shift back to a typical trade wind direction and a reinforcing south swell lingers. Up north, expect a rising trend late tonight through Thursday as a medium-period northwest swell arrives and moves through. The swell will linger Friday, then move out over the weekend.
