Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores will remain at or around advisory-levels each day through the week, and potentially into the weekend as a series of large overlapping northwest swells arrive and move through. The swell that arrived Monday peaked overnight and has begun to lower early this morning. This downward trend will continue into this evening, before rising Wednesday through Thursday as large overlapping swells arrive and move through. Surf may reach warning levels Wednesday night through Thursday. A downward trend is then expected Friday into Saturday. A large north- northwest swell will be possible by Saturday night. Surf along east- facing shores will hold steady through the week below the advisory level. Surf along south facing shores will remain small each day near the seasonal average.
