FORECAST OUTLOOK

The solid NNW swell that filled in and peaked today will trend down through the weekend. This swell is still strong on buoy 01 this afternoon, although down a bit from an early morning peak and also trending more ‘north' in direction. Saturday will see overhead surf through the day, with some lingering sets still pushing double overhead in the earlier part of the day.

The swell will fade further on Sunday and also trend even further toward the north in direction. Breezy trades continues over the weekend.

No major changes to report for the swell early next week. We still expect to see a modest building trend late in the day on Monday, although the bulk of the swell arrives and peaks on Tuesday. The satellite data we have been able to gather on the storm thus far is very close to model guidance, so we'll basically hold numbers from yesterday.

While this swell won't be as big as what we're seeing now, overhead surf looks very likely for Tuesday, with sets running up to a few feet overhead. Wednesday will see a fading trend, with just small leftovers expected for the final few days of the event window.
