The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for the south facing shores of all islands in Maui County until 6 p.m. on Monday, July 1, 2019.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.

Surf of 6 to 9 feet is forecast for tonight, rising to 8 to 12 feet Sunday through Monday afternoon.
