North shore is pretty rough these days. The tropical storm Madeline passed south of Big Island (picture below is from 5am) and that means that the counter clockwise rotation of its winds is adding to the regular flow of the trades.
As a result, the Hookipa iWindsurf sensor is already reading 15-28 mph at 5.30am. There will be waves (mostly head high with some overhead sets is my guess), but a lot of wind too.
6.9ft @ 9s from 77° (ENE)
1.2ft @ 5s from 162° (SSE)
Madeline didn't even do much rain, let's see what Lester brings. That one should get much closer to Maui and pass by us from the north instead.
Today the wind should be strong and that is confirmed by Windguru in its new graphics. I circled the clocking of the winds that Lester should cause when it gets closer. Saturday afternoon the north shore could have some moment of relative cleaness if the wind goes south.
This is the map of Wednesday 7 and it shows a well oriented strong fetch east of New Zealand. If confirmed, it should generate a decent swell starting 7 days later and with a reinforcement on Friday the 16th that Surfline calls at 3f 18s. Too early to get excited, but it's good to know that at least there will be something coming from the south.
