A high surf warning is in effect for the north facing shores of Maui and Molokai until 6 p.m. today.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service say surf is expected to rise to 14 to 18 feet today, and build to 20 to 25 feet.

The NWS advises beach goers that a warning indicates that dangerous and battering waves will pound the affected shorelines, and will result in very dangerous swimming conditions and deadly rip currents.
