Surfers can expect southern swell Friday

Advertiser Staff

The surf is on its way down along almost all of the shoreline areas on O'ahu today, but a new south-southwest swell is heading our way, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast calls for the new swell to arrive here Friday, producing surf that will climb during the weekend to near the high surf advisory level of 8 feet on the south shore.

In addition, a small northwest swell, the first of the winter season, is due in on Friday.

Today's forecast calls for surf of 1 to 3 feet along south-, west- and east facing shores and 2 feet or less along north-facing shores.
