A very large west-northwest swell will continue through Thursday. The swell is expected to peak Wednesday afternoon for Maui County. Strong harbor surges and large breaking waves are expected at harbor entrances exposed to the swell. Mariners and oceangoers should use extreme caution when in and around the ocean. A High Surf Warning is in effect at this time and big wave surf spots like Pe’ahi “Jaws” are breaking.
