A new northwest swell is forecast to build today and into tomorrow, December 8th. This swell will fade late Thursday into Friday.
A small north-northeast swell is expected to show for the Kohala area.
A small southwest swell is expected to slowly fade out over the next couple days, getting down to traces by the end of the week.
