Swell Summary

The next south swell is timed to arrive along the island's southern shorelines late tonight and peak Tuesday into Wednesday. This should translate to slightly above normal surf along south facing shores Tuesday and Wednesday. This south swell may wrap in and provide a small bump to western shore surf the next couple of days.

In response to weakening trades, surf along east facing shores will fall off through the day and hold through mid week.

A series of compact low pressure systems passing across the Northwest Pacific will produce small, low period west to northwest swells during the second half of the week. The first in a series of these overlapping west to northwest swells is expected to arrive late Tuesday followed by a slightly larger swell Friday into Saturday.
