South and west facing shores of Oahu to see large surf from Hurricane Walaka


Hurricane Walaka continues to push to the northeast of the state Thursday morning and remains west to the Hawaiian Islands. 

Again, Walaka is not a threat to Hawaii but it is influencing our winds. 

Kauai County will see mostly cloudy skies due to Walaka through the majority of the day. We can also expect that same type of cloud cover over Oahu as well. 

Walaka will also influence our swells with 6 to 10-foot faces for the south shores as a high surf advisory is in effect and box jellyfish is expected. 

On the west facing shores, surf of 8 to 10-feet is expected and a high surf advisory is also in effect. 

Light and variable winds are expected through Saturday. Trade winds will build back late Saturday.
