HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A high surf advisory will take effect at 6 p.m. Saturday for a rising swell that could bring waves of up to ten feet high on south-facing shores.

The advisory will be in effect for the south shores of all islands until 6 p.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu said waves will build to 6 to 10 feet into the night and continue through Monday.

The swell will bring strong breaking waves and shore breaks, along with strong long shore and rip currents that could make swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should listen to ocean safety officials.
