A series of northwest to west northwest swells will pass through the next several days.

The next moderate size, medium period west to northwest swell will build in beginning Wednesday and potentially lift north and west-facing shore surf back up to High Surf Advisory (HSA) levels Thursday and Friday.

A slightly larger northwest swell arriving around New Year’s Day (Sunday) may also generate a HSA event Monday.
