High-surf warning on until Wednesday

A high-surf warning for north-facing shores of Maui and north- and west-facing shores of Molokai has been extended to 6 a.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service said Monday.

Waves are expected to reach 20 to 25 feet along the north-facing shores and 15 to 20 feet along west-facing shores, the weather service said.

A large northwest swell is blamed for keeping surf at warning levels along exposed north- and west-facing shores of Maui and Molokai.

Large breaking waves and shorebreak and dangerous ocean currents, including rip currents, could be possible, the weather service said.

A small-craft warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday for the Kaiwi Channel, between Oahu and Molokai, and Maui County windward waters.

Seas are expected to be 9 to 14 feet.

The forecast for today and tonight is partly cloudy skies with isolated light showers. High temperatures could reach 83 degrees with lows of 68 degrees. Variable winds are expected to blow up to 15 mph.
