10-15 Foot Surf Expected along N Shores til 6a Jan. 27, 2011
A High Surf Advisory has been extended for the north facing shores of Maui and Molokai until 6 a.m. on Thursday, January 27, 2011.
Surf heights are expected to be in the 10-15 foot range for the height of the face of the font of the waves.
Advisory level surf is capable of producing rip currents and localized beach erosion. Beach goers are urged to stay out of the water and well away from the shore break along affected shorelines due to the hazardous wave action.
A high tide of approximately 1.9 feet is expected between 10:44 p.m. and 11:16 p.m.
