High-surf ad­vi­sory posted for is­lands

The Maui News - - COUNTY -

The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice is­sued a high-surf ad­vi­sory through 6 a.m. to­day for the east-fac­ing shores of Maui, Molokai and most of the rest of the state.

Surf was fore­cast to rise to 6 to 8 feet. Beach­go­ers were told to ex­pect strong break­ing waves and cur­rents that make swim­ming dif­fi­cult and dan­ger­ous.

A small-craft ad­vi­sory was ex­pected to re­main in ef­fect un­til 6 p.m. to­day.

Fore­cast­ers pre­dicted mostly

cloudy skies and breezy con­di­tions for Maui County to­day, with scat­tered show­ers for wind­ward and mauka ar­eas dur­ing the day and more rain likely at night. Lee­ward res­i­dents and vis­i­tors can ex­pect iso­lated show­ers.

High tem­per­a­tures were fore­cast to range from 79 to 84 de­grees, with overnight lows from 68 to 73. Winds should blow out of the east from 15 to 25 mph, with gusts of up to 35 mph.

Cloudy and mostly cloudy con­di­tions were ex­pected to per­sist through the end of the work­week.

For the 24-hour pe­riod end­ing at noon Mon­day, the only Maui County rain gauges re­port­ing an inch or more of rain were Puu Kukui in the West Maui Moun­tains, 3.71 inches, and West Wailu­aiki above Keanae, 1.78 inches.
