National Weather Service Honolulu HI: 4 PM, Monday, March 4, 2019

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a High Surf Advisory, which is in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday, March 7, 2019.

An area of low pressure NE of the state will send a large N-to-NE swell towards the islands tonight, Monday, March 4, that will linger through Wednesday night, bringing advisory level surf to most east-facing shores.

Areas in Maui County under the advisory include windward Moloka‘i and windward Maui.

Surf will build to 10 to 14 feet late tonight and Tuesday, then lowering to 6 to 10 feet Wednesday along east-facing shores of Moloka‘i, Maui, Kaua‘i, O‘ahu and the Big Island.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents, making swimming
difficult and dangerous.
