A lingering swell is bringing some high surf to east-facing shores of the Hawaiian islands, forecasters say.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for east shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, Kahoolawe and the Big Island. The advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Forecasters said surf will reach 5 to 8 feet through Saturday morning.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, choppy waters, rough seas and strong longshore and rip currents which will make swimming difficult and dangerous.
