Obviously there were waves in Maui too. Even in the sky! This photo was taken by my friend Annette.
4am significant buoy readings
3.5ft @ 12s from 230° (SW)
3.7ft @ 13s from 211° (SW)
Most of the outer buoys are registering only the NW energy, but Barbers and SW tell us that there is still southerly energy in the water in the form of 3.5f 12-13s. Yesterday Ukumehame was still waist to chest occasionally shoulder, today it's probably going to be thigh to belly, occasionally chest.
Wind map at noon.
No fetches of relevance for the third day in a row in the North Pacific. Expect the north shore to go flat after the NW energy winds down.
South Pacific has a fetch so deep south that SEEMS to be oriented towards us, but I can't be sure since the great circle rays map doesn't get down there. I had to shift the whole windity map down to spot the fetch and Hawaii is where the red X is above the map. If it is oriented towards (and if the icebergs don't block the swell!), it'll take 10 days for it to reach us, like around Thursday 28th. Where's Pat Caldwell??? Would have loved to read what he thinks about it.
