... 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 upcoming Holiday 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
Water levels at the Honolulu tidal station are currently running
about 0.7 feet higher than predicted values, and water levels are
expected to remain higher than normal through the weekend. 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.
