High surf from Tropical Storm Emilia was expected to begin reaching the east shores of Hawaii island today as high surf from former Hurricane Daniel subsides, the National Weather Service said.

The Weather Service issued a high surf advisory Friday warning of 6 to 10 feet of surf with occasionally higher sets. Forecasters were trying to decide Friday night whether to extend the advisory, which was set to expire at 6 a.m. today.

The surf brought by Emilia was expected to be smaller and peak on Sunday.

Forecasters say this weekend should bring normal tradewind weather as Daniel, now a remnant low, moves west and away, south of the islands.
