The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

Surf of 22 to 28 feet is ex­pected to­day along north-fac­ing shores of Molokai and Maui and has prompted the National Weather Ser­vice to is­sue a high-surf warn­ing through 6 p.m. Sun­day.

The warn­ing also ex­tends to west-fac­ing shores of Molokai; surf is ex­pected to reach 15 to 20 feet.

Grad­u­ally de­clin­ing to­day after reach­ing warn­ing lev­els Thursday night, the surf was ex­pected to build tonight again to “an ex­tremely large, long pe­riod north­west swell,” the weather ser­vice said. The swell was ex­pected to peak Satur­day evening with warn­ing-level surf from tonight to Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Ex­pect the surf to oc­ca­sion­ally sweep across beaches with strong break­ing waves and rip cur­rents.

A small-craft ad­vi­sory is in ef­fect un­til 6 p.m. Sun­day as well. Seas are ex­pected to build to 17 to 22 feet tonight.

The fore­cast for to­day through Satur­day is mostly sunny in the morn­ing and partly sunny with iso­lated show­ers in the af­ter­noon.
