Forecast: Surf dropping but still dangerously large

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light trade winds and a few passing showers will greet you on this Wednesday morning. Sunshine should be plentiful by afternoon, with the winds going light and variable. High in Honolulu will be a warm 83 degrees.

Surf is dropping but still large and dangerous along north and west shores. Waves are biggest for Kauai County. For Oahu, the National Weather Service says surf should reach 18 to 22 feet for north shores, 12 to 16 feet for west shores, 2 to 4 feet for east shores, and 1 to 3 feet for south shores.

A High Surf Warning is in effect for north and west shores of Kauai and Niihau.

A High Surf Advisory is up for north and west shores of Oahu and Molokai along with north shores of Maui.

A Small Craft Advisory is also in effect for most Hawaii waters.

This month's jellyfish invasion is massive. More than 1,000 were counted in Waikiki yesterday with about 120 stings. Numbers will likely be less today, but use caution and talk with lifeguards before you or the kids jump in the ocean.
