A High Surf Advisory is posted for south-facing shores. A slow-moving storm near New Zealand generated a south-southwest swell that will continue to build across Hawaiian waters today. Advisory level surf is expected through 6:00 p.m. Sunday. Waves of 6-8 feet are expected with bigger sets at the best breaks exposed to the swell. The swell is expected to continue to build today and peak overnight.
A Small Craft Advisory is posted for the Pailolo and ʻAlenuihāhā channels, as well as Māʻalaea Bay through 6:00 a.m. Sunday. Northeast winds from 15 to 25 knots are expected with rough seas up to 11 feet.
