A high surf warning remains posted for the north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai, the north shores of Maui and the west shores of Hawaii Island, with sets as high as 50 feet possible for exposed north shorelines. The dangerous waves are expected to peak today and slowly lower Sunday. A small craft advisory is also in effect for all coastal waters due to the swell.
