High surf advisory issued for east-facing shores

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Beach goers can expect potentially dangerous surf conditions through Wednesday evening, as the National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for east-facing shores.

Officials say surf in those areas is expected to reach seven to ten feet on Monday, then drop to six to nine feet on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

A high surf advisory means that waves along the affected shores will be higher than normal. Beach goers are urged to stay out of the water and well away from the shore break due to hazardous wave action.

Forecast surf heights are estimates of the height of the face, or front, of waves.
