HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The High Surf Advisory that was issued for north- and west-facing shores of some islands has been canceled, but strong trade winds are bringing elevated surf to east-facing shores. As a result, the National Weather Service has instead issued a High Surf Advisory for east-facing shores of the Big Island and Maui.

The High Surf Advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Forecasters from NWS say surf is expected to reach 10 to 16 feet along east shores.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, strong longshore and rip currents, making swimming difficult and dangerous.
