Wednesday 6 17 20 morning call

Today's photo is a random picture of a small town in Spain called Tarifa by Marco Mora.

6am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.9ft @ 13s from 186° (S)
1.7ft @ 18s from 196° (SSW)

1.9ft @ 15s from 188° (S)  
1.5ft @ 18s from 191° (SSW)

The Lanai buoy is probably getting the period of the old southerly energy wrong: it's most likely 13s like Barbers indicates. But what counts is that the 18s period energy is pretty solid (but probably inconsistent). Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency. There's head high sets here and there.

Even bigger at Ala Moana.

North shore
4.5ft @ 8s from 86° (E)      

Small waves at Hookipa, bigger on the eastern exposures.   

Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).

Fetches map (circles legend: red: direct aim, blue: angular spreading, black: blocked, yellow: apparent direct aim, but out of the great circle ray map, so not 100% sure).
North Pacific (about 4 days travel time from the NW corner of the North Pacific):

On June 8th I posted the same day maps (below) as predicted by the Euro model and the GFS one. Neither one was particularly accurate, and that's a demonstration of how pointless is to look too far ahead in the forecast.

South Pacific (about 7 days travel time from east/west of New Zealand):

Morning sky.
