High-surf advisory up

A high-surf advisory for east-facing shores of Maui and Molokai is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday, the National Weather Service said.

Strong trade winds are expected to bring elevated rough surf to exposed east-facing shores through at least Friday night, the weather service said. As the trades weaken Friday, surf heights are expected to gradually lower, but may remain elevated through the weekend.

Surf of 8 to 12 feet is expected to fall to 6 to 10 feet by late today, the weather service said.

The forecast for the central valley of Maui today is mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a 50 percent chance of rain. Easterly winds are expected to blow 10 to 15 mph. The high temperature should hit 80 degrees with overnight lows of 62 to 67 degrees.
