.DISCUSSION...
Surf will remain up along south facing shores as a series of
overlapping small, long period swells from the southern hemisphere
pass by. Eastern shores will experience rough and choppy wind wave
conditions due to persistent moderate to fresh trades. Surf along
north facing shores will trend down through the middle of the week in
response to a diminishing northwest swell.
