Swell Summary

Surf along exposed north and west facing shores has been trending up overnight and should peak early this morning as a north-northwest swell moves through. A gradual downward trend is expected later today through Thursday as the swell begins to move out. Surf will begin to climb once again Thursday night and peak just below the advisory levels for exposed north and west facing shores of the smaller islands Friday as a larger, north-northwest swell arrives. This swell will slowly fade over the weekend. Surf along south facing shores will remain up into the second half of the week as a long-period south swell moves through. This event should peak Thursday before fading into the weekend. Surf along the east-facing shores will be small and choppy for the next several days due to the locally fresh to strong trade winds.
