Man, I woke up early this morning... Anyways, even though uncle Pat and the NOAA forecast the next south pulse to start showing up later today, I don't see it happening at all. The equator buoy started sensing something only Tuesday afternoon and that means that it will get here Thursday afternoon. A bigger pulse should arrive Saturday, but it's from a SSE direction and could be partially blocked by the big island. I guess, we'll find out. The models forecast an extremely deep storm forming in the next few days at a very southerly latitude (60S, 140W). It will generate one of those big ones, but the long travel distance and the fact that it will be aimed to a point east of the islands, will limit the size on our shores. I guess we'll find out that too! Arrival time should be around the end of next week.
Trades blowing freshly will keep the windswell active and a mini NW swell should be up in 2 to 3 days. Enjoy the Maui Film Festival. I'll be there every night and this will slow down the reporting activity on this site. COAB, please.
