FZHW52 PHFO 191338 SRFHFO Surf Zone Forecast for Hawaii National Weather Service Honolulu HI 338 AM HST Thu May 19 2022 .DISCUSSION... Surf heights along south facing shores will remain elevated into the weekend as the current south swell becomes reinforced today. In the long range, models show quite a bit of activity in the southern hemisphere, which could translate to a few south shore surf events over the next week or so. Surf along north and west facing shores will trend up today as a small, medium-period northwest (300-320 degrees) swell arrives. A return to small, summer-like conditions is expected over the weekend and into the first half of next week as this swell energy fades.

__________________________________________________________________ Product Legend: Surf: Height of the surf from trough to crest (face value) in feet. Tides: Heights displayed are relative to the Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) datum in feet. Surf heights can vary significantly from beach to beach along a coastline. Surf larger than the upper end of the range provided in the forecast will occur periodically, sometimes up to a few hours apart. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near the surf zone, with rip current strength increasing with surf size. Swimmers are urged to exercise caution at all times and enter the water near a lifeguard.
