HONOLULU (AP) - The National Weather service says Oahu, Maui and Molokai can expect higher-than-normal surf over the next couple of days.

Forecasters have issued a high surf advisory for north and west-facing shores of the three islands, with waves being anywhere from 8 to 20 feet.

The advisory went into effect on Thursday morning and extends until at least Friday afternoon, and in some areas into the weekend. Forecasters say beach goers should watch for rip currents.
