A powerful northwest swell will continue to bring extra large surf today as it gradually diminishes from northwest to southeast across the island chain. The swell will diminish further tonight and Tuesday, but a new large northwest swell is expected to arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday. Although not expected to be as impactful as the current swell, peak surf heights will likely be large enough on Wednesday to prompt a high surf warning for exposed north and west facing shores. This next swell will gradually diminish Thursday into Friday, with the long-range outlook featuring a moderate-size west- northwest swell next weekend, with potential for a north swell as well. No other significant swells are expected.
