A small northwest swell is forecast to show this weekend and will bring increasing surf to north and west facing shores peaking Saturday.
A couple of large XXL northwest swells are expected soon. The first is forecast to build late Sunday and peak on Monday, likely bringing warning level surf to north and west facing shores of most of the islands into Tuesday.
The second is due to arrive Wednesday night into Thursday/Friday next week.
