Swell Summary

A large west-northwest (310 degrees) swell will fill in late today and tonight. This swell is expected to peak Saturday with an 18 second period and high-end advisory or low-end warning level surf for most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands. The more westerly direction of this swell will allow west facing shores of the Big Island to experience advisory level surf, likely later in the day Saturday. Swell and surf will lower gradually Sunday and Monday, then become rather small for this time of year on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rough surf will increase to advisory levels along east facing shores through the weekend as the trade winds increase. Small, mainly background, southerly swells are expected over the next several days. A slightly larger, south-southwest swell from the Tasman sea is expected to gradually fill in Monday, peak Monday night and Tuesday, then lower Wednesday through Thursday.
