.DISCUSSION...
A building west-northwest swell will bring High Surf to exposed north
and west facing shores as it peaks today, including west facing
shores of the Big Island. This swell will gradually diminish tonight
into Thursday. A powerful long-period west-northwest swell is
expected to build Friday, peak Friday night and Saturday, then
gradually diminish Sunday and Monday. A High Surf Warning will likely
be necessary for exposed north and west facing shores, including the
west facing shores of the Big Island. A small to moderate east-
northeast swell is also possible over the weekend.
