...COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...

Coastal flooding, associated with a combination of high tides and
higher than normal water levels, will be a possibility through
the weekend. The greatest potential for coastal flooding impacts
will be during the peak daily high tide, which will occur during
the mid- to late-afternoon hours the next several days.

Observed water levels at the Honolulu tidal station continue to be
much higher than predicted, and are currently running about 0.8
feet higher than predicted values. Visit tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov
for observed and forecast tides and water levels in your area.

Impacts may include flooding of beach areas that are normally
dry, salt water inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying
roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal infrastructure. The
potential for coastal flooding will diminish early next week as
the peak daily tides diminish.
