Swell Summary

A High Surf Advisory is in effect for exposed east facing shores through this afternoon because of strong trades and short-period choppy surf. The trade winds will weaken and veer east southeast by early this week.

The current northwest swell continues to trend downward, with a small reinforcement from the same direction expected late today. This will be followed by a more significant, advisory-level northwest swell Monday night. More larger, reinforcing northwest swells are forecast to arrive Tuesday and Thursday. Surf from these larger swells will likely produce warning level surf along most north and west facing shores, and will only gradually fade through next weekend. No other significant swells are expected.
