The SSW Hilo buoy model (@buoy51002) shows a combination of South-Southwest swells that should provide a small bump in surf over the weekend. Small wave heights hovering around 1.3 feet, but a strong 16 second period. The model also shows a slight increase on the buoy late Saturday (1.6 feet at 16.2 seconds 204°), which should fill through Sunday morning.
A larger, more Southerly swell is forecast to peak late Wednesday night (3.6 feet at 15.8 seconds 189°) and fill through Thursday the 18th.
At the moment, a small, moderate-period NW swell is showing on the Waimea buoy (@buoy51201). A larger Northwest swell is forecast to arrive on Thursday the 19th (3 feet at 11.4 seconds 316°), providing some fun surf for the Country.
