A high surf advisory for Hawaii Island’s north-facing shores remains in effect until through 6 a.m. Thursday.

National Weather Service forecasters in Honolulu called for waves ranging in height from 14 to 18 feet along the island’s north-facing shores. The surf is expected to lower to 10 to 15 feet tonight.

The service categorized the surf’s impact as “moderate” and advise the public to expect strong breaking waves and strong rip currents that can make swimming dangerous and heed all advice given by ocean safety officials.
