High Surf Warning
Statement as of 3:31 PM HST on August 29, 2015

... High surf warning in effect until 6 PM HST Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a high surf
warning... which is in effect until 6 PM HST Tuesday. The high
surf advisory is no longer in effect.

* Surf... 6 to 12 overnight... rising to 15 to 20 feet late Sunday.

* 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 shorebreak... and dangerous currents make
entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water could
face significant injury or death.






Tropical Storm Watch
Statement as of 12:08 PM HST on August 29, 2015

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

... Precautionary/preparedness actions...
loose objects such as lawn furniture... garbage cans... and other
items should be secured or stored indoors. Have supplies on hand
and be ready for power outages.


... Probability of tropical storm/hurricane conditions...
the chance for hurricane conditions at this time is very small.
Also... the chance for tropical storm conditions at this time
ranges from 24 to 47 percent. This represents a general
steady trend since the last forecast.

... Winds...
there is potential for sustained winds to reach tropical storm
force of 39 mph as early as Monday morning. It is important to
remember that only a small change in the track of Ignacio could
result in higher winds.

... Storm surge and storm tide...
swells generated by Ignacio will begin to arrive along east and
southeast facing shores of The Big Island later today and increase
to 15 to 20 feet on Sunday through Monday. Resultant surf will be
large and potentially life-threatening... especially on The Big
Island later this weekend and early next week. Some coastal
inundation of low lying areas... including but not limited to the
Kapoho area... is expected especially at high tide.

... Inland flooding...
total rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches... with isolated amounts
near 6 inches mainly in areas of higher terrain... are possible in
the watch area.
