A high-surf warning remains in effect this morning for north- and west-facing shores of Niihau, Kauai and Oahu.

The National Weather Service says a northwest swell is diminishing and has lifted high-surf warnings for north- and west-facing shores of Molokai, Maui and the Big Island. Those islands are now under a high-surf advisory.
The weather service says waves of 20 to 25 feet are expected along north- and west-facing shorelines of Niihau, Kauai and Oahu.
It says the warning is likely to be replaced by an advisory later today.
The weather service says another swell is on its way, with the next big waves are expected to arrive Saturday night.
