10 21 morning call


 Bit of a transition day yesterday and today might be just the same.

The photo of the windsurfer at Hookipa is by Jimmie Hepp.

Not much at the Pauwela buoy at the moment.

2.5ft @ 7s from 82° (E)           
2.4ft @ 9s from 23° (NNE)
1.9ft @ 13s from 353° (N)
1.8ft @ 5s from 64° (ENE)
But the graph of the NW one shows an increase in size that should be reflected on Maui in the late afternoon. Not all of those 5.6f 11s will make it here, so don't expect anything huge.
We had (and still have) a nice stretch of NW fetches, but they were quite distant and not that strong.
South shore trending down too today (in the 14s component), but it's nice to see a reading at 20s which is going to very slowly build today, but mostly tomorrow and Friday.
2.8ft @ 14s from 190° (S)
1.9ft @ 8s from 281° (WNW)
0.9ft @ 6s from 128° (ESE)
0.8ft @ 20s from 190° (S)

This a webcam combo snap: lahaina on the left, hookipa on the right. That's why I'm posting this at 7am, way later than usual: I knew I could take it easy this morning.
Late post means that I could find the MC2km maps updated and this is the 1pm one. Should be windy, but not very windy. The pink means 15-20 knots, but when it's not a big area of it, it usually means that it's closer to 15 that to 20. It will all depend on how sunny it will be, as usual.
Let's not forget our beloved fetches, without which there will be no waves at all.
Far, relatively weak NW one and even more far, but much stronger S one. Could be worse.
Their energy should arrive in 4 and 8 days respectively.

I will post multiple updated today, so stay tuned on this page.
