Message Summary:

…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 impacted by coastal flooding through the late afternoon and early evening hours. 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. 5/26 friday 5:07 pm hst 2.5 feet (advisory level south shore surf) 5/27 saturday 5:55 pm hst 2.4 feet (advisory level south shore surf) 5/28 sunday 6:46 pm hst 2.3 feet (south shore surf gradually lowering) 5/29 monday 7:40 pm hst 2.1 feet (south shore surf lowering) maui county shorelines can expect similar impacts around the times of high tides. Please visit the website tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov for more information about water levels in your area. In addition to the coastal flooding impacts, a long period south swell will steadily build through the day, peak later this afternoon around advisory levels and hold through saturday night before gradually lowering into next week. The combination of large surf and high water levels will result in additional wave run up along the southern shores, likely flooding beaches that typically remain exposed during normal high surf events. A high surf advisory remains in effect for south facing shores through early sunday. Please see the coastal hazard message (cfwhfo) on our website for more information regarding surf related hazards along south facing shores. Surf and water levels are forecast to gradually trend back toward normal through the upcoming week.
