HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A high surf advisory has been canceled for the south shores of all islands, but waves will be on the high side for all but east-shore beaches.

Surf on south shores are forecast to be in the 4 to 6 foot range Monday and will slowly decline through mid-week.

Meanwhile, there’s a new northwest swell that will push surf just below the advisory threshold for north and west shores.

North shores are expected to rise to 10 to 14 feet Monday, with west shores rising to 7 to 10 feet.

An even larger northwest swell is expected to push waves into advisory-level heights Thursday into the upcoming weekend.

If you’re looking for calmer ocean conditions, head to the east shores. Waves will be 1 to 3 feet at best, and will remain small all week due to a lack of trade winds.
