The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a high surf advisory for south-facing shores which is in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
A low east of New Zealand last week generated a swell that will continue to affect the islands today.
Surf: 5 to 8 feet along south-facing shores.
Timing: Through 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Impacts: Moderate. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: Beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
