A high surf advisory for the east facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island has been extended to 6 a.m. Saturday.
Surf is expected to reach eight to 12 feet today, then lower to six to 10 feet on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
Beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
Forecasters said to expect breezy conditions to continue today, with a strong high pressure ridge to the northeast, and a low pressure system to the west. As an upper level trough rotates through the islands today, showers will be enhanced, particularly over Kauai and Oahu. East to southeast winds will focus showers over the windward and mauka areas.
Meanwhile, February was a wet month for many locations across the Aloha state. The total rainfall through the isles — in Lihue, Honolulu, Kahului, Hilo and Kona, were all higher than normal rates.
The highest total rainfall in February was recorded in Hilo, with a total of 15.45 inches, more than 5.89 inches from normal rates. The wettest day in February in Hilo was Feb. 24, which recorded 3.64 inches of rain.
