Hilo side: Wave heights are forecast to be shoulder high to overhead today and building as the west-northwest fills in.

Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today and building to about chest high later in the day.

South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today with the best breaks getting up to chest high by sunset.

A new west-northwest is expected to fill in today peaking on Wednesday and holding through Thursday morning before beginning to fade back out.

Another storm is expected to develop that will generate a swell for the upcoming weekend.

Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific any time soon. Southwest wind chop is down to leftovers.

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.
