3am significant buoy readings and discussion
1.9ft @ 9s from 173° (S)
2ft @ 9s from 168° (SSE)
5.2ft @ 9s from 92° (E)
6.8ft @ 9s from 91° (E)
Flossie is pretty close to us, and we're getting some medium period energy. The Mokapu graph below shows an upward trend in the 9s range and overall in the significant wave heights. East exposures will have some size today, probably a bit stormy, but at least with no wind on it for most of the morning. Hookipa will have some waves too, but probably pretty small.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has that distant west fetch and an east fetch behind Flossie, which is now close enough to kill the wind today.
South Pacific's strong fetch is now aiming to the Americas, so not much wave generation for us today.
