A big squall gave Jimmie Hepp the opportunity for some rainbow shots. Plenty more in this gallery.
4am significant buoy readings
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 0.3f 15s. The W buoy reads a remarkable 6ft @ 14s from 287° (WNW), but somehow only a sliver of all that energy gets to the Kihei coast. Yesterday the waves at Kalama park were in the knee to occasionally waist high range. The direction indication might be wrong, as the SW and SE buoys show NW instead.
Wind map at noon shows easterly trades for the eighth day in a row. A much needed break is coming up soon.
North Pacific shows a proper NW fetch (949 is the lowest pressure). This swell will peak around 12f 15 in the night between Wednesday and Thursday, rapidly followed by a giant one, at the moment predicted by Surfline at 22.4f 16s on Sunday morning.
South Pacific shows a couple of very weak fetches.
