Surf is expected to rise to 12 to 16 feet today, prompting a high surf advisory starting at midnight for north shores of Oahu, Kauai County, Maui, Molokai and Niihau.
The advisory is in effect until 6 p.m.
The National Weather Service said a north northwest swell will bring strong breaking waves that will generate significant shore break and strong rip currents, making swimming dangerous.
Beachgoers should heed advice given by lifeguards and exercise caution.
