Warnings & Notices

High Surf Warning

Expires 6:00 PM HST on January 19, 2017
Statement as of 3:41 PM HST on January 18, 2017

... High surf warning in effect until 6 PM HST Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a high surf
warning... which is in effect until 6 PM HST Thursday.

* Surf... rising to 10 to 14 feet along west facing shores.

* Timing... tonight and Thursday.

* Impacts... high... expect ocean water occasionally sweeping
across portions of beaches... very strong breaking waves and
strong longshore and rip currents. Breaking waves may
occasionally impact harbors making navigating The Harbor
channel dangerous.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Large breaking surf... significant shorebreak... and dangerous
currents make entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering
the water could face significant injury or death.





Special Statement

Expires 4:00 AM HST on January 19, 2017
Statement as of 9:41 am HST on January 18, 2017

... Very windy weekend ahead...

A strong high pressure system will pass north of the islands
this weekend... bringing very windy conditions to all islands
Saturday and Sunday. The strong northeast to east winds will be
especially gusty over higher terrain... through mountain gaps... and
downslope of the mountains. These winds can make loose outdoor
objects become airborne... and result in hazardous driving
conditions due to strong cross winds.

If you have outdoor plans for the weekend... be prepared for very
windy conditions. If your plans involve marine activities... you
may want to consider postponing them.

Stay tuned to the National Weather Service or your favorite media
outlet for further updates on the forecast.
