Hilo side: Wave heights knee to waist high today with surf expected to fade further through the day.
Kona side: Wave heights from ankle to waist high out of the northwest. The south-southwest is expected to bring knee to waist high sets.
South: Wave heights of knee to waist high to overhead are expected for spots catching the northwest. A small south-southwest swell could get up to waist high on the sets.
Our current northwest swell is expected to continue to fade through Monday. A shadowed west-northwest is expected to start building Tuesday and peak on Wednesday morning possibly up to overhead at the best breaks on the sets.
Possible storm development off of Japan may bring a swell for first few days of March. Will keep an eye on it.
Only small SSW for now but a fun sized swell is possible the middle of next week.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
