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.

High Surf Advisory: South facing shores from 6 a.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Sunday.

West: Surf heights are expected to be waist/chest high today building to head high or overhead by sunset.

South: Surf heights are expected to be waist/chest high today building to head high or overhead by sunset.

A larger shot of good south-southwest builds Friday, peaking late Friday into early Saturday. The swell could slightly exceed model guidance.

Choppy east trade wind swell continues but will drop off as our winds die down.

Our current north-northwest continues to fade. A fun northwest is forecast for the middle of next week. Will keep an eye on the models.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
