By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: [email protected]w.com
A Small Craft Advisory is posted for all Maui County channels and Māʻalaea Bay through 6:00 p.m. Sunday. East winds up to 30 knots are forecasted along with rough seas of 10 to 13 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Maui County projected winds, forecasted swell direction, height & period, tides, a surface map and expected wave heights.**
North: Wave heights are expected around chest/head high today for spots along Hana for example. Messy conditions due to the winds.
West: Pretty flat conditions are expected today for spots shadowed from the swells.
South: Ankle to knee high waves are expected today. Best breaks could get a bit bigger on the sets.
Not a lot expected out of the North Pacific for the next few days. A couple of small swells could move in around May 5th and again on the 8th.
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.
