A series of south swells begins arriving in the islands today with elevated surf expected through the weekend, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service.

The agency issued a high surf advisory for the south shores of Maui County through 6 a.m. on Saturday, with surf heights projected to be in the 6 to 10 foot range.

Forecasters from the NWS say reinforcing south swells may possibly bring higher surf heights over the weekend.
