The National Weather Service has continued the High Surf ADVISORY for North facing shores of the two islands until 6 a.m. Saturday, January 8, 2011.

A High Surf Advisory means that waves will cause localized beach erosion and will produce rip currents along affected shorelines.

As a precaution, beach goers are urged to stay out of the water and well away from the shore break due to the hazardous wave action.


A high tide of approximately 1.5 feet is expected between 3:57 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. this afternoon. The next high tide of approximately 2.5 feet is expected between 4:53 a.m. and 6:11 a.m. tomorrow morning.
