Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)

Special Weather Statement: Coastal flooding is anticipated over the next several days along all shores of the Hawaiian Islands due to record level spring (king) tides. Impacts include beach flooding, standing water on roadways and low-lying areas near the coast. A large summer south swell is also filling in Friday and will exacerbate the problem leading to additional beach run up, flooding and erosion.

Small Craft Advisory: ʻAlenuihāhā and Pailolo channels, as well as Māʻalaea Bay through 6 a.m. Thursday.

Looking Ahead

Winds are forecast to slowly weaken through the end of the work week with light and variable winds expected for the Memorial Day weekend. This means muggy, hot conditions with the possibility of haze. Afternoon sea breezes could lead to building cloud cover and some showers. As a weak upper level disturbance passed over the state this weekend some of those showers could get heavy over leeward and interior areas.
