A Small Craft Advisory is posted for windward waters and the Alenuihaha channel through 6 p.m. Monday.
**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Big Island projected winds, tides, swell direction & period and expected wave heights.**
Hilo side: Wave heights are expected head high to well overhead out of the northwest.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high today in the morning, then fading.
South: Breaks open to the swell produced by Pali are around waist/head high today with the most size in the morning.
Our current northwest swell has begun a slow fading trend but will keep surf elevated through at least Tuesday.
Our current south-southwest lingers with wave heights topping out in the knee high range. Tropical system Pali is expected to bring an out of season boost to southern shores, peaking Monday morning and lingering through Tuesday.
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.
