A northwest swell is expected to reach Maui Saturday afternoon bringing advisory level surf.

The swell is being generated by a former typhoon that turned into a powerful storm off the Western Aleutian Islands earlier this week.

High Surf will first affect Niihau and Kauai on Saturday morning with surf rising to 12 to 15 feet.  Surf on other islands, including Maui will increase to 10 to 15 feet along exposed northwest shores on Saturday afternoon and evening.

A High Surf Advisory was issued by the National Weather Service from 6 a.m. Saturday, October 31, 2009 to 6 p.m. Monday, November 2, 2009.
