'Double-overhead' surf could hit south shores

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:50 p.m. HST, Jun 21, 2011


A high surf advisory is in effect for south-facing shores of all islands until 6 p.m. Thursday.

Waves faces of 5- to 8-feet are expected today, with surf peaking at 8- to 10-feet Wednesday.

Forecasters say surfers could see double-overhead waves at select locations through Thursday.

The National Weather Service says the swell is from a storm system southeast of New Zealand last week.

The high surf advisory means large breaking waves will affect exposed beaches, reefs, jetties and channel entrances.

Dangerous rip currents and localized beach erosion could occur.
