264 FZHW52 PHFO 161340 SRFHFO Surf Zone Forecast National Weather Service Honolulu HI 340 AM HST Thu Jul 16 2020 NOTE: Please check with local authorities regarding beach closures. HIZ005>011-170245- Oahu- 340 AM HST Thu Jul 16 2020 Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Friday. Surf along north facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Friday. Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through early Friday, then will lower to 2 to 4 feet by late Friday. Surf along west facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Friday. Outlook through Thursday July 23: No significant swells are expected into the middle of next week. A small, long-period south-southwest swell may provide a slight bump in surf along south facing shores this weekend. The weakening trade winds will cause surf to decline along east facing shores during the next few days. A slight increase in surf along east facing shores is expected later this weekend as the trade winds strengthen. Surf along north facing shores is expected to remain nearly flat. Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone. $$ Houston is the U.S. government's official web portal to all federal, state and local government web resources and services.
