HURRICANE WATCH: Hurricane Ignacio is gradually weakening, and is now a Category 2 hurricane, with sustained winds of 105 mph. Cool water ahead of Ignacio will cause it to weaken further today, eventually becoming a tropical storm by Wednesday or Thursday.
Hurricane Jimena is located about 1,330 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii. Jimena remains a strong Category 4 hurricane. However, Jimena will track west or west-northwest into cooler waters by the middle of this week leading to gradual weakening of the storm in the long range. No direct impact to land is forecast this week, but increased swells may head toward Hawaii late this week.
By Tuesday may be okay too with a combination of waist high plus Typhoon Asanti energy, waist high NW wind swell and the possibility of some decent sized Hurricane Jimena surf showing up later in the day.

The conditions look okay with SE/SSE breezes in the 3-5 MPH zone until 10AM and 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 79 degrees.
For Wednesday looks interesting with a combination of NW energy from 305-310 degrees and some 12 second + interval swell from Jimena from 195-200 degrees. If things play out according to projections the South facing breaks should go chest to shoulder high and the West facing breaks should be good for chest high peaks!
