For tonight, 10th January, the Hellenic National Meteorological Service expects big waves out at sea and at the coasts, also in Sfakia.

This is their forecast for tonight at 5 AM. Just out at sea they will be +3.4 meters, and still +3 meters when reaching Sfakian territory, rolling in from the Southwest:
