Swell Summary

Long period forerunners from a building south swell have begun to arrive at the nearshore buoys south of Oahu early this morning. This swell is expected to build today and tonight, then peak over the weekend. Although the bulk of the swell energy will pass east of Hawaii, advisory level surf remains a possibility Saturday into Sunday as the swell peaks. South shore surf will lower early next week, but a reinforcing south swell will likely keep south shore surf above normal levels through the middle of next week. Surf along east facing shores will build today, and become very rough tonight through the weekend as the trade winds will be blasting. East shore surf will rise to well above seasonal levels by this afternoon, then likely reach advisory levels Saturday through Monday. The trades will trend down early next week, so we should see the very rough conditions improve ever so slightly, with a gradual and slow lowering of east shore surf through the middle of next week. The current west-northwest swell will continue to gradually fade out today. No other significant northwest swells are expected through the middle of next week.
