The National Weather Service in Honolulu has extended the high surf advisory for east facing shores of Molokai and Maui to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.
Rough surf of 7 to 10 feet is expected today, dropping to 6 to 9 feet Tuesday and Wednesday.
Forecast surf heights are estimates of the height of the face or front of waves.
A high tide of about 1.3 feet is expected between 5:22 p.m. and 6:40 p.m. today. The next high tide of about 2.4 feet is expected between 6:17 a.m. and 7:35 a.m. Tuesday.
Beach goers are urged to stay out of the water and away from the shore break due to hazardous wave action and strong rip currents.
