A new swell is due to arrive in the islands today, peaking at 15 to 20 feet on Friday.
A large storm southeast of New Zealand last week is sending a south-southwest swell toward the Hawaiian Islands, according to the National Weather Service.
A south swell continues to impact the south facing shores of the Hawaiian islands, with surf expected to remain elevated at 6 to 9 feet through this afternoon.
The National Weather Service has since cancelled the high surf advisory that was in effect earlier for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi.
Surf along the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi is expected to be in the 6 to 10 foot level, prompting a high surf advisory by the National Weather Service.
Surf along the north facing shores of of Maui and Molokaʻi is expected to remain elevated at 14 to 18 feet today, according to an advisory issued by the National Weather Service.
A swell generating “extra-large to giant surf” is expected to generate 25- to 35-foot surf along the north and west facing shores of affected islands beginning late Saturday.
Winter shores will soon begin to feel the ocean mist due to heavy-wave activity as the weekend gets underway with rising north swells that could offer double-overhead sets.
A high surf advisory is in effect for the north and east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi until midnight on Friday, Nov. 15, 2013.
The agency issued a high surf advisory for the north and east facing shores of Maui, Molokaʻi, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi Island, and Niʻihau beginning at midnight on Saturday, Nov. 9, and continuing until 6 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 11.
