A high-surf advisory is in effect for the east-facing shores of Oahu, Kauai, Maui and Molokai.

The National Weather Service said advisory level surf will continue through tonight along east-facing shores exposed to the north swell. Surf is expected to reach 6 to 8 feet along the east shores through tonight.

“Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous,” the advisory said.

The advisory warns beachgoers, swimmers and surfers to exercise caution and heed advice from Ocean Safety officials.
