National Weather Service Honolulu HI

352 AM HST Sat Apr 21 2018

Surf along north facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet this morning,
building to 5 to 7 feet later today, then lowering to 4 to 6 feet

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 3 feet this morning,
building to 3 to 5 feet later today, then lowering to 2 to 3 feet

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Sunday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Sunday.

Outlook through Saturday April 28:
Surf will remain below High Surf Advisory levels along all shores. A
moderate northwest swell will peak Sunday and another moderate
northwest swell is possible next Thursday. Surf will remain small
along south facing shores through the middle of next week. Lows in the
southern hemisphere may strengthen and shift east enough to produce
some bigger surf along south facing shores by the end of next week.
Rough surf will persist along east facing shores through Sunday night
due to the locally strong trade winds, but heights will remain
moderate. Surf will build along east facing shores next week as trade
winds strengthen.

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.
