East shores should remain small as light to moderate trade winds prevail. No small craft advisories are expected through the forecast period.

Nora may bring some east-southeast swell to the islands Monday/Tuesday. Will keep an eye on this and see how it develops.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
