The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for the east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and Hawaii island through 6 p.m. today.
Strong trade winds are expected to generate rough surf along east-facing shores, the weather service said. Waves are expected to reach six to eight feet.
The trade winds are expected to decrease slightly over the next two days.
Rain is also expected over windward areas, with some heavy showers possible.
Although drier trade wind conditions are expected for the latter half of the week, wetter weather is possible this coming weekend, forecasters said.
