A High Surf Advisory is in effect for east- and south-facing shores of all Hawaiian islands as a swell from Tropical Storm Jimena brings large waves through the first half of the week, according to the National Weather Service.

The High Surf Advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Surf along east-facing shores are expected to rise to 6 to 9 feet on Tuesday. Surf along south-facing shores are currently 5 to 8 feet.

Beachgoers can expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across portions of beaches, very strong breaking waves and strong longshore and rip currents. Breaking waves may occasionally impact harbors, making navigating the harbor channel dangerous.

These dangerous conditions mean that only highly experienced persons should enter the water.
