Big Picture

BIG PICTURE
Thursday 6/9/16

The Jet continues to be weak but there’s enough trough right now in the 7 day outlook for tiny short period NW surf up to 2’ average around Monday 6/13. The Jet weakens further by next week. So any longer range Lows we see are sub gale and only allow for short period back ground shore lappers. Highs dominate the summer season so this is leading to mostly NE trade wrap for country.

NPAC
Recent-current: We’ve had a very fun run of 3’ NNE swell wrapping to select reefs this week. This will hold, fade, pulse and fade some into the weekend as trades remain fresh in addition to upstream winds.

Next 1: A weak spinner far NW ‘may’ lead to 2’ NW surf Monday.

Next 2: Monday on: More upsteam East winds from the large 1036mb High to the NE may bring in more windswell for select reefs the entire week.

Last: Strange storminess to our west will need monitoring. At this point we ‘may’ see 2’ surf at 10 sec Friday the 17th. Grasping.

SPAC:

The deep Jet had 160- to pockets of180kt a week ago spawning multiple storms SE of NZL with NE tracks. This leads to what will likely be one of the summer’s best back to back to back swells. Today 6/9) the flow points off to our SE better aimed at the Americas. By Friday the 10th the Jet is lame and takes a nap into Tuesday where- tho’ winds build- the flow is very zonal or west to east. Powerful Storms do track within but only small swells for us due to angular spreading with long periods are forecast for the long haul (week of 20th).

Recent and current: We’ve had SSW swells of 2’ this past week with minor exceptions. All inconsequential compared to what’s coming.

Next #1 and #2: Last Wednesday June 1st saw a long wide fetch develop SE of NZL. It veered NE as winds ramped to 45kts Thursday. By Friday some wind pockets far SE of NZL were 55kts (thus the 18 second forerunners today). The batch of NE pointing fetch was 1500 miles long and 700 miles wide. We should see a super slow rise later Wednesday and especially Thursday to 2-3’ from the SSW by afternoon with 2 pulses of 18 sec and 22 sec later from the fetch’s’ above. By Friday the action should really kick in with as these two combine. Look for 3-5’ Friday (2 swells of 3’ 15 + 3’ 20 sec). Trades will be fresh so some spots like DH and toward Koko Head will be challenged.

Next: #3: By Saturday yet another wide large 45-55kt fetch SE of NZL comes up. It morphs for a long lasting event peaking Sunday at 4-6’ with some standout reefs going larger. (Tahiti is going to go loony at 20’). This will slowly fade Monday but still be just over high surf advsys.

Last: A Low spawns just under Tahiti Monday the 6th with some 45kts but it ends up tracking SE away from us. Then by Tuesday-Wednesday a bigger 55kt fetch sets up further South. WW3 hints of 22 sec forerunners Monday the 13th and surf hitting 3-5’ at 20 sec Tuesday from the S-SSE. It will mix with the fading SSW. So sets will be plenty and form will be ‘interesting’ combo peaks.

Windward: Plenty NE Trades, plenty NE trade swells of 3’ average and no significant change in sight. The nearly stationary High continues this week with upstream winds developing esp again this next week. This lengthens the periods a hair which in turn refract a little higher near shore. Watch for possible 4’ sets next week of the 20th.

Tropics:
Nothing at over this 7 day forecast period.
