HURRICANE WATCH: Hurricane Guillermo is located about 1,570 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Guillermo’s top sustained winds are now 90 mph with higher gusts. The storm is tracking west-northwest at 17 mph but may slow over the weekend. Guillermo will continue to strengthen over the next several days as it becomes a Category 2 and perhaps even a major hurricane (Category 3 or greater) over the next 36-48 hours.
By Saturday morning that SW energy will be on it’s last legs with very inconsistent sets in the knee to waist high range for the better South facing beaches.

The conditions look to be similar with variable breezes in the 2-4 MPH zone until 10AM and 9-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a toasty 79 degrees and there’s a 10% chance of rain.
Monday morning looks a hair better with some small, but long interval South swell from 200-205 degree angle. This should be good for some fun little waist high plus sets at the better S/SW facing breaks. While not big, it is a deepwater swell and should have a little push to it.
There’s also another steeper South swell showing up later in the day. This energy moves in from a 185-190 degree angle and will also be a small but deepwater swell. It should be a bit bigger for Tuesday.

The conditionslook fair for the AM with variable breezes at 1-3 MPH until 10AM and those get up to 9-12 MPH in the afternoon. There is a 10% chance of rain and the air temp remains a balmy 80 degrees.
Tuesday should have some small South pulses through the day. The 200+ degree swell will be on the decline but the South, 185+ degree energy will be peaking. Nothing to do backflips over but it should make for some waist high plus muscley little sets.
