...COASTAL FLOODING ANTICIPATED IN CONJUNCTION WITH HIGH TIDES
AND INCOMING SOUTH SHORE SURF...

Coastal flooding is anticipated over the next several days
along all shores of the Hawaiian Islands due to record level
spring (king) tides. Similar to the April 28th through May 1st
weekend, when the highest tides on record were reported for
Honolulu, impacts will include beach flooding and standing
water on roadways and low-lying areas near the coast through
the weekend.

A large summer south swell is expected to build on Friday and
continue through the Memorial Day weekend, before steadily
easing next week. Surf generated from this south swell will
likely be advisory-level heights, but will be exacerbated by
the high tides resulting in additional beach run up, flooding
and erosion.

The following are the daily high tide times for Honolulu which
will correspond to the maximum coastal impact:

5/24 Wednesday 3:36 PM HST
5/25 Thursday  4:20 PM HST
5/26 Friday    5:07 PM HST (peak water levels/surf expected)
5/27 Saturday  5:55 PM HST (peak water levels/surf expected)
5/28 Sunday    6:46 PM HST
5/29 Monday    7:40 PM HST

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.
