Small South Today, New NW Pulses Soon
Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)
A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for our usual windy coastal waters.
**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 forecast from knee/chest high today.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be flat but traces of south swell filling in around knee/thigh high.
South: Wave heights are expected to be flat with traces of south swell filling in around knee/thigh high. Trade swell will get up to chest high for the best exposures.
Trade swell continues up to about chest high for exposed breaks.
Back to back pulses out of the North Pacific are possible this weekend and early next week. Will keep an eye on the developing situation.
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.
