Swell Summary

A medium period north (340-350) swell has begun to rise over the offshore buoy (51000) overnight as its expected to reach shorelines through the morning. The subsiding west- northwest swell will ease through the day as west facing shores decline slowly. Surf along east facing shores will remain below average through Thursday except for areas exposed to the north swell. A trend up is expected Friday into Saturday as a small northeast swell arrives. Surf along south facing shores remain slightly elevated through Thursday.
