High surf forecast for east and south facing shores

High surf forecast for east and south facing shores

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Strong trade winds around the island will pick up surf along east- and south-facing shores of the islands, large enough for a High Surf Advisory.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu said the advisory for south shores of all islands will be in effect until 6 p.m. Monday. The advisory for east shores will be in effect through Wednesday.

A strong low pressure system in the southern hemisphere has generated the swell, which is expected to peak Monday.

Surf for south shores will reach 8 feet, while surf for east shores could reach up to 10 feet.

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

On Oahu, this is also the weekend for the monthly box jellyfish influx for south and some west shores. Check with lifeguards before going in.
