Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 4:02 AM HST May. 26, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 am HST Sunday...

* surf... building to 6 to 10 feet later today and continuing
through Saturday along south facing shores of Niihau... Kauai...
Oahu... Molokai... Lanai... Maui... Kahoolawe and The Big
Island... then lowering to 5 to 8 feet Saturday night into
Sunday.

* Timing... building today... peaking late this afternoon through
Saturday... then lowering gradually Saturday night into Sunday.

* Impacts... expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across
portions of beaches particularly around the early evening high
tide. Very strong breaking waves and rip currents are also
expected. Breaking waves may occasionally impact harbors making
navigating Harbor channels dangerous.

Precautionary/preparedness actions... large breaking surf...
significant shorebreak... and rip currents make entering the water
hazardous. Beachgoers... swimmers... and surfers should heed all
advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.

Special Statement
Issued: 3:25 PM HST May. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flooding anticipated in conjunction with high tides
and incoming South Shore surf...

Coastal flooding impacts associated with record level King tides
will continue each day along all shores through the Memorial Day
weekend. Beaches and shorelines, boat ramps and docks, and
vulnerable low-lying roads and structures will be threatened by
coastal flooding, particularly around the daily high tide times
during the late afternoon and early evening time frames.

The following are the daily forecast tide levels and times for
Honolulu which will correspond to coastal flooding impacts. Be
advised that observed tides have been running higher than these
values.

5/25 today 4:21 PM HST 2.4 feet
5/26 Friday 5:07 PM HST 2.5 feet (south shore surf expected)
5/27 Saturday 5:55 PM HST 2.4 feet (south shore surf expected)
5/28 Sunday 6:46 PM HST 2.3 feet
5/29 Monday 7:40 PM HST 2.1 feet

Other islands and shorelines can expect similar daily high tide
times and heights. Please visit the website tidesandcurrents.NOAA.Gov
for more information about water levels in your area.

In additions to the tidal effects, a large, long period south swell
is expected to build Friday and maintain through Saturday. The
combination of large surf and high water levels at high tide will
result in additional wave run up and flooding along the south
shores that typically remain exposed during normal high surf
events. A high surf advisory has been issued for exposed south
facing shores beginning Friday. Please see the coastal hazard
message (cfwhfo) on our website for more information about the
surf heights and impacts specific to the south shores.

Surf and water levels are forecast to gradually trend back toward
normal through the upcoming week.

... Coastal flooding anticipated in conjunction with high tides
and incoming South Shore surf...

Coastal flooding impacts associated with record level King tides
will continue each day through the Memorial Day weekend. Flooded
beaches, vulnerable low-lying roads and coastal areas, boat ramps
and docks will be impacted during these hours surrounding the late
afternoon and early evening high tides each day.

The peak tides are expected Friday and Saturday, which will
coincide with a new south swell that will generate advisory-
level surf along along south facing shores late Friday through
Saturday. A combination of large surf and high water levels will
result in additional wave run up, likely flooding beaches along
the south shores that typically remain exposed during normal
conditions. Surf and water levels are forecast to gradually trend
back toward normal through the upcoming week.

The following are the daily forecast tide levels and times for
Honolulu which will correspond to coastal flooding impacts.

5/25 Thursday 4:21 PM HST 2.4 feet
5/26 Friday 5:07 PM HST 2.5 feet (south shore surf expected)
5/27 Saturday 5:55 PM HST 2.4 feet (south shore surf expected)
5/28 Sunday 6:46 PM HST 2.3 feet
5/29 Monday 7:40 PM HST 2.1 feet

Other islands and shorelines can expect similar daily high tide
times. Please visit the website tidesandcurrents.NOAA.Gov for
more information about water levels in your area.
