The high surf advisory for south shores of all islands is now a high surf warning as a south swell is expected to peak today with wave faces as high as 15 feet.

The National Weather Service upgraded the surf advisory to a warning at 7:41 a.m. It is in effect until 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Wave faces are predicted to be 10- to 15-feet today. The warning is expected to become an advisory again Wednesday morning  after the swell peaks and starts to diminish below 15-feet.

Surf along west facing shores are expected to reach heights of 6 to 10 feet Tuesday, forecasters say. East shores should see 3- to 5-foot wave faces.

There's even a small north swell with waves of 1- to 3-feet through Tuesday.

The new south swell reinforces a smaller swell that arrived Sunday.

Forecasters warn that the high surf will produce dangerous rip currents. Inexperienced surfers and swimmers are urged to stay out of the water and avoid the shore break.

Boaters are cautioned to be careful when entering harbors.

Localized coastal flooding is also possible along vulnerable beaches, especially during high tide this afternoon. Forecasters say Makaha could be affected. The high tide is expected to reach 2-feet this afternoon between 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

does anyone actually read the bible and believe it.? What you are seeing is and has been prophesied for years but it's getting closer every day. What is? The end to this system as we know it.When was the last time, not counting world wars when many nations were having as much turmoil? If you take a look at the book of Daniel you will read @the immence image that Daniel explained to King Nebuchadnezzar. The image represents the world powers that effected the Isreal nation at that time, even down to our day. there is reference to an angle that had spent 21 days trying to get to Daniel to strenthen him. his problem was that the prince of Persia contended with him, He couldn't get passed him so Jesus came and helped him. Then he tells Daniel that he will have to contend with that prince and one from Greece too. Could it be possible that all the world powers have a prince interfering in human affairs? The answer is yes..The ruler of this world is Sa tan,
