Surfline Official Forecast - Saturday, Nov. 23rd, 2013


BRIEF OVERVIEW

The Haleiwa event will finish off with fun waist-chest occasional shoulder-head high+ sets and ENE Trades on Sunday the 24th. Plenty of swell lining up for the Sunset event next week, a new NW pulse due to build in Monday PM into Tuesday the 26th, with possibly a solid NW swell due for Friday the 29th.

HALEIWA

SUNDAY 24th: Finishing the Haleiwa event on a fun day
SWELL/SURF: NW shifting NNW swell holds, offering surf mainly around the waist-shoulder high zone at Haleiwa, with occasional waves/peaks hitting head high+ on the bigger ones (3-4' occasional 5'+ faces). Likely some occasional slightly overhead peaks/wedges popping up during the better tides.
WIND: Light to moderate ENE Trades through the first part of the morning, becoming moderate to breezy for the day. Partly cloudy/sunny skies.

SUNSET

MONDAY 25th: Transition day between swells
SWELL/SURF: Old NNW swell eases through the day, while a new NW swell builds over the PM. Look for chest-head high occasional 1-2' overhead sets at Sunset (4-6' occasional 7' faces) in the early morning. Surf will gradually decline through the morning and into the afternoon. However, look for waist-chest occasional head high+ sets to show before dark off the new building NW energy. 
WIND: Light to moderate ENE Trades through the first part of the morning, becoming moderate to breezy for the day. Partly cloudy/sunny skies. 

TUESDAY 26th: Decent size swell tops out over the morning
SWELL/SURF: New NW swell peaks in the morning with sets around head high to a few feet overhead+ for Sunset (5-8'+ faces), occasional bombs pushing up to double overhead (9-10' faces). This energy will ease slowly over the afternoon.  
WIND: Light to moderate East Trades through the first part of the morning, becoming moderate to breezy for the day. Partly cloudy/sunny skies.

WEDNESDAY 27th: Easing surf
SWELL/SURF: Easing NW swell. Biggest early with chest-head high occasional 1-2' overhead sets at Sunset (4-6' occasional 7' faces). Surf will gradually decline through the day.
WIND: Light to moderate ESE wind. Partly to mostly cloudy skies.

THURSDAY 28th: Small-scale, but watching for new NW to build in over the PM
SWELL/SURF: Old NW swell continues to ease, still offering sets around waist-chest occasional shoulder-head high in the morning (3-4' occasional 5' faces). However, we're watching for a new/solid NW swell to be steadily building in over the PM, potentially with larger sets showing before dark (still pending development)
WIND: Light ESE veering SE wind. Partly to mostly cloudy skies.

SWELL/SURF OUTLOOK FOR SUNSET

Another complex storm system had recently developed over the northwestern rim of the Pacific and tracked eastward into the central NPAC. This system setup a fetch for Hawaii that packed wind speeds up to 30-40kts or so, which will deliver another decent pulse of NW swell (305-330 deg) that will build in over the PM hours on Monday. Look for chest-head high+ sets to show for Sunset before dark on Monday off this fresh energy. On Tuesday morning, Sunset will see plenty of waves around head high up to a few feet overhead, with occasional sets/peaks pushing up to double overhead. This energy will be easing slowly over Tuesday PM through mid week, but still offering chest-overhead waves for Sunset on Wednesday.

Further out; forecast charts continue to indicate that we'll see a new developing low sweep across the Northwest Pacific through the next few days or so, where it may intensify quite a bit by mid week over the central NPAC, and within close proximity to the Islands. If this continues to stay on track, then a solid and consistent NW swell (310-330 deg) will build into the North Shore over the PM on Thursday the 28th and peak on Friday the 29th, potentially with double-triple overhead+ sets at Sunset. Stay posted for updates, still pending development.

WIND/WEATHER

High pressure will continue to extend over Hawaii through the first half of the new week; offering moderate to breezy ENE veering East Trades (lightest in the early mornings) through Mon/Tues, as well as generally partly cloudy/mostly sunny skies for the North Shore. Lighter East veering ESE wind may show on Wednesday, as a front approaches the Islands from the NW.

At this time, we're expecting a front to approach the Islands around mid week, possibly passing through Oahu late Thursday to Saturday (28th-30th) with variable wind and good chance for rain showers. Stay tuned.

Next Update: Sunday evening, Nov 24th
