A new north swell has begun to rise on the offshore buoy (51101) northwest of the state. Nearshore buoys north of Kauai has started to notch up in the early morning hours. The swell is expected to build in near High Surf Advisory (HSA) levels before gradually lowering through the weekend. Another north- northwest swell is forecast to arrive early next week, potentially producing another round of near advisory level surf for north facing shores. An even larger north swell is anticipated around the middle of next week although confidence remains low.
A small, long-period south swell will continue to slowly fill in, and will boost surf along south-facing shores to near the summertime average through Saturday, before returning to mainly background levels Sunday through early next week.
East shore surf will remain well below average for the next couple of days due to the lack of trades over and upstream of the islands except for east shores exposed to the north swell.
