Swell Summary

Mid- to short-period NE swell continues to be the primary wave energy early this morning according to near shore PacIOOS buoy data, as the ongoing WNW swell fades out. Some modest NE swell reinforcements are expected tonight, then gradually diminishing over the next several days. Surf along E facing shores will increase by midweek, and may lead to high surf. Swell from the developing kona low should reach the smaller islands late tonight and tomorrow, with the largest swell on the W end of the island chain. Offshore buoys have yet to pick up on this swell which is why it was decided to hold off on issuing an advisory with this package. Latest model guidance has also come in lower on the predicted peak surf heights, thus confidence in this swell peaking up to warning levels is still uncertain but not totally out of the question, especially for Kauai. After this swell peaks and diminishes through the week, no other significant NW swells are expected into the weekend.
