HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A large northeast swell will bring advisory-level surf to the Hawaiian islands. A High Surf Advisory is in effect for east- and north-facing shores of Oahu, Molokai and Maui until 6 p.m. Friday.

Forecasters expect waves to be between 10 to 15 feet along north-facing shores, and 8 to 12 feet along west-facing shores. NWS urges beachgoers, swimmers and surfers to heed all advice given by Ocean Safety officials since strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents will create dangerous conditions.

NWS said waves could even reach roadways, bringing sand and debris to the area.
