Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will be reinforced by a pulse of north swell later in the day. A High Surf Advisory (HSA) in effect for this episode along many north and west facing shores will continue at least through this afternoon. The north swell will gradually decline Wednesday through Friday. Rises are expected on east and south facing shores as well. Wind swell will build as the trade winds increase today and Wednesday, but the islands will lie near the eastern edge of the fetch of strong trade winds, which will limit the growth of the local seas. The latest guidance shows the rough trade wind swell could push east shore surf on Kauai near the HSA level as early as later today, but seas are projected to build to around seasonal average elsewhere. That said, some wrapping north swell could lead to elevated east shore surf, as well as surges in Kahului and Hilo Harbors. In addition, background south shore surf will be interrupted by a small south-southwest swell arriving this afternoon and peaking Wednesday into Thursday.
