Life-threatening surf on the North Shore
High Surf Warnings posted for the N/W Shores of Ni’ihau, O’ahu and north shore of Maui.
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Today the winds start to transition from light and variable to typical trade wind weather. We go from easterly light winds in the midday to light trade winds this late afternoon/early evening. Low clouds and trade showers will favor windward and mauka areas from late tonight through the end of the week. Locally breezy trade winds are expected from Thursday into the weekend.
High Surf Warning is in effect for the North and West shores of Ni’ihau, Kauai, Moloka’i and the north shore of Maui. We are in the middle of a LARGE, long period north-northwest swell which is bringing dangerous life-threatening conditions to affected beaches and shorelines thru Wednesday morning with a High Surf Warning taking over the rest of Wednesday. The rest of the week will see a series of swells that will bring additional moderate wave action thru the later part of next week.
