Weekend Waters Welcome South Swell
By Maui Now Staff
A south swell is expected to arrive in the islands today, producing advisory level surf along the south facing shores through Monday morning.
The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for the south facing shores of Maui County from 6 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13, to 6 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 15, 2014.
Forecasters with the NWS say forerunners from the swell began arriving at island bouys early Saturday morning, with surf expected to remain at advisory level through the weekend.
The agency advises that surf will be in the 5 to 8 foot range along the south facing shores, creating strong breaking waves, long shore rip currents, and will make swimming difficult and dangerous in affected areas.
