Tuesday 10 1 19 morning call

Nice fun size waves in Lahaina yesterday, while Hookipa saw some action too thanks to the remotely generated NW swell and the NE windswell. This is the biggest wave of Jimmie Hepp's daily gallery.

3am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
2.2ft @ 13s from 299° (WNW)
1.4ft @ 10s from 195° (SSW)
1.1ft @ 11s from 199° (SSW)

2ft @ 14s from 182° (S)
1.4ft @ 9s from 190° (S)
1.1ft @ 11s from 197° (SSW)

2ft 14s at Lanai from a swell that is a bit of a mystery, Pat Caldwell doesn't even mention in it in his table/discussion. We'll take it anyway, check the Lahaina webcam before going.

North shore
3.9ft @ 12s from 325° (NW)

3.7ft @ 13s from 318° (NW)

2.6ft @ 13s from 323° (NW)

4.5ft @ 8s from 52° (ENE)

NW swell coming down in period, but still at the buoys, there should be decent size waves at Hookipa also today and also on the easterly exposures thanks to the NE windswell (check Mokapu for that).

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific only has the windswell fetch.

South Pacific has a couple of fetches in the Tasman Sea and a one of which we could get a bit of angular spreading (blue circle).

Morning sky.
