The National Weather Service has continued the High Surf Advisory for east-facing shores of Molokai and Maui, in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

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 today increasing to six to nine feet today.

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