The National Weather Service in Honolulu has canceled all surf-related advisories and warnings for north- and west-facing shores of the Big Island. Advisory level surf is no longer expected as a northwest swell moving through the area eases.

However, a high wind warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday, March 12, for the summits of Maunakea and Mauna Loa. West winds of 30 to 70 mph, with localized gusts of more than 85 mph, are forecast.
