Swell Summary

Surf along S facing shores remains near to below average until Thursday when another surge of long period energy brings elevated surf conditions. The current small medium period NW swell will peak today followed by a building short period fresh NW swell emanating from developing low pressure to the northwest. This swell is forecast to peak near to just below the High Surf Advisory threshold Thursday into Friday. West facing shores see a bump in surf through the week due to overlapping NW swell and S swells wrapping into exposed areas. Surf along E facing shores remains well below normal through the weekend.
