High surf advisory issued for east-facing shores of Oahu

High Surf North Shore

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for east-facing shores of Oahu, Molokai, and Maui, in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.

Expect surf of 5 to 8 feet along east-facing shores through Tuesday.

Forecast surf heights are estimates of the height of the face or front of waves.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents, making swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers should heed all advice given by Ocean Safety Officials and exercise caution.
