Alerts

A High Surf Advisory is posted for south facing shores through 6 p.m. Friday for wave heights up to 6 to 8 foot faces. The swell is expected to build Thursday night and peak Friday. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.

A Small Craft Advisory is posted for the Pailolo and ʻAlenuihāhā channels as well as Māʻalaea Bay through 6 a.m. Saturday. Northeast to east winds up to 25 knots are expected along with seas up to 10 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are expected to continue through the weekend and into next week. Brief passing showers will ride on our winds and push into windward coasts and slopes over the next couple of days, with no major moisture sources expected. Increased moisture is expected to fuel a greater number of windward showers early next week.
