Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 5:00 AM HST May. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flooding to continue along south facing shores...

Coastal flooding impacts associated with higher than normal water
levels are expected once again this evening around high tide.
Beaches that normally remain dry along Southern Shores could
flood due to a combination of wave runup from the surf and high
water levels. Ocean water could also inundate the typical
vulnerable low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal
infrastructure.

The following are the times for the predicted evening high tides
at Honolulu, which will correspond to potential coastal flooding
impacts this evening before trending down toward normal Tuesday.
Be advised that observed tides are running higher than these
predicted values. Tide elevations listed below are relative to the
mean lower low water datum.

5/29 today 7:40 PM 2.1 feet (south shore surf lowering)
5/30 Tuesday 8:36 PM 1.9 feet (average high tide)

As the water levels and surf continue to trend down Tuesday
through the upcoming weekend, coastal flooding is not expected.

A similar period of record breaking tides and coastal flooding is
expected between June 21 and June 27.
