There is a high surf advisory in effect for the north and west facing shores of Kauaʻi, Niʻihau, Oʻahu and Molokaʻi as well as for the north facing shores of Maui.

According to the NWS, “An incoming large northwest swell will boost surf along most north and west facing shores of the smaller islands, and the north facing shores of Maui. The swell is expected to continue to build this evening and tonight, and may cause surf to approach the warning criteria along some north facing shores tonight and Thursday.”
