Kauai Surf Forecast for December 02, 2022
HIGH SURF WARNING FOR NORTH AND WEST FACING SHORES THROUGH 10 AM
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH AND WEST FACING SHORES FROM 10 AM HST
UNTIL 6 PM HST TODAY
The large, long period west-northwest (300-310 degree) swell that peaked last night into early this morning will slowly begin to subside through this weekend. As this swell gradually fades this morning, the High Surf Warning will remain in effect for Niihau and Kauai through 10 AM and then drop to a High Surf Advisory, along with the north and west-facing shores of Oahu and Molokai, through this afternoon (6 PM HST today). A High Surf Advisory (HSA) is also in effect for the west-facing shores of Big Island until 6 PM HST today to account for the slow fade of this more westerly swell. A moderate size, medium period northeast swell moving into our nearshore windward waters Saturday is expected to increase north and east-facing shore surf across the state to near or slightly over HSA levels.
