High Surf Advisory Extended, WNW Builds Late
The High Surf Advisory has been extended for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi until 6 p.m. Monday. Surf along east facing shores could reach heights of 5 to 8 feet. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and dangerous currents that make getting into the water hazardous and swimming difficult.
A Small Craft Advisory is posted for all Maui County waters until Monday at 6 p.m. Winds of 20 to 25 knots are expected and rough seas up to 14 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

North: Surf is expected up to a couple feet overhead out of the NE. A new WNW builds through the day bringing overhead + wave heights to the best exposures.
West: Spots that are open to the NE swell will get some wrap with waves expected a couple of feet overhead. Breaks that don’t catch the swell are forecasted to get smaller surf at ankle high or flat.
South: Many areas will remain flat today.
A west-northwest swell is expected to begin to build today. Surf is expected a couple feet overhead early with larger waves by sunset. This swell is expected to peak on Wednesday.
A new north-northwest swell is expected to build Friday into Saturday.
Super small trace amounts of swell expected out of the SPAC. Not much to get excited about.
