High Surf Advisory Issued For Maui, MolokaʻiMarch 8, 2020, 9:15 AM HST · Updated March 8, 9:15 AM 0 Comments
The National Weather Service has extended a high surf advisory for east facing shores of Molokaʻi and Maui in effect until 6 a.m. Monday.
Officials say strong trade winds combined with a north-northeast swell will continue to produce elevated, rough surf along east facing shores of most Hawaiian Islands through early Monday morning.
Surf is expected to reach 6 to 9 feet today, and lower to 5 to 8 feet tonight.
Forecast surf heights are estimates of the height of the face or front of waves.
“Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous,” an announcement from the county read.
“If in doubt, DON’T GO OUT.”
Beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers are urged to heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
