High Surf Advisory for Big Island North and East shores until Saturday (Jan 6)

By Hawaii 24/7 Staff

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a High Surf Advisory for North and East shores of the Big Island until 6 a.m. Saturday (Jan 6).

Surf is forecast to be in the four to seven foot range for East facing shores and six to 10 foot ranger for shores exposed to the North swells.

The high surf can produce dangerous rip currents and cause localized beach erosion. Beachgoers should use caution in and near the ocean.

A West-Northwest swell will build Saturday and may boost surf back to advisory levels on Sunday for North and West shores.

A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Alenuihaha Channel, Leeward and Southeast waters of the Big Island until 6 a.m. Saturday.
