HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A High Surf Advisory has been extended for the south-facing shores of all islands until 6 p.m. Sunday.

The National Weather Service said a long period south swell will slowly subside through early next week.

Forecasters expect waves of 5 to 8 feet.

The swell could bring strong breaking waves, shore breaks and strong currents that will make swimming dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should heed all advice from ocean safety officials.
