Swell Summary

The progressive, zonal flow pattern across the North Pacific will direct a series of NNW to WNW swells that will assist in maintaining above average surf along many north and west-facing shores through next week.

Surf along north and west-facing shores will hold through the day as a short period north northwest (320-330 degree) swell levels out. A small, short period northeast (030 degree) swell propagating in from a recent hurricane force low off the U.S. west coast will slowly fade down the chain through today. Surf along north and west-facing shores will gradually build this weekend into the middle of next week from consecutive northwest (320-330 degree) and northwest-becoming- north (360 degree) swells moving through the island waters. These swells may lift surf to around advisory levels along north-facing shores as early as Sunday or Monday. A larger, medium period northwest (330 degree) swell generated by winds behind an approaching cold front will likely push north and west-facing surf near or slightly above warning thresholds Wednesday.

Surf along south-facing shores may experience a slight bump today into Saturday from the arrival of small, long period swell. Surf will return to background levels by early next week along south-facing shores. East-facing shore surf will remain small, except for shores better exposed to north wrap.
