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.
Forecasters with the NWS say surf along east facing shores will be below advisory levels.
The strengthening winds over parts of Maui County will produce large and rough surf along the east facing shores through Tuesday, April 22, according to an updated forecast from the National Weather Service.
The agency issued a high surf advisory for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi through 6 p.m., saying surf is expected to be in the 6 to 8 foot range throughout the day.
Beach goers, swimmers and surfers are advised that advisory level surf will produce rip currents, localized beach erosion, and make swimming difficult and dangerous.
