A High Surf Warning is posted through 6:00 a.m. Friday for the east-facing shores of Maui and Moloka’i. Expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across portions of beaches. Very strong breaking waves and strong longshore rip currents. Breaking waves may occasionally impact harbors making navigating the harbor channel dangerous.
A Small Craft Advisory has replaced the Tropical Storm Warning for Maui County windward waters. Winds of 15 to 30 knots out of the northwest are forecasted with rough seas up to 15 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.
