Humongous waves forecast for isles

HANALEI, Kauai » Honolulu and Kauai lifeguards are preparing for the possibility of a giant, long-lasting swell expected to arrive tomorrow, officials said yesterday.

A high-surf warning could be in place as early as tomorrow morning for surf as big as 25 feet, according to National Weather Service forecasters.

The storm, currently near the Aleutian Islands, has been in the Hawaii swell window for days, and the giant surf is not expected to subside until Saturday.

However, another cold front is also expected to hit Kauai Thursday night, moving south of the Big Island by Saturday. There is a chance of locally heavy rain and gusty winds, especially Friday, according to Ian Morrison, a National Weather Service forecaster
