A high surf warning remains in effect until 6 am HST Wednesday.
Surf...along east facing shores...10 to 15 feet.
Timing...building this morning and then peaking later today.
The large surf will be reinforced on Wednesday by swell from
distant Hurricane Jimena. Elevated surf will persist through
at least the weekend.
Impacts...very high...expect ocean water surging and sweeping
across beaches...coastal benches...and lava flows creating the
potential for impacts to coastal properties and
infrastructure...including roadways. Powerful longshore and rip
currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking waves
and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and channels
causing challenging boat handling.
These dangerous conditions mean that only highly experienced
persons should enter the water. Inexperienced persons should
remain off beaches and adjacent beachfront areas. Large breaking
surf...significant shore break...and dangerous currents make
entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water
could face significant injury or death.
