    The National Weather Service says a combination of high tides and abnormally high sea levels will produce nuisance coastal flooding over the next couple of days. Here, so-called king tides hit Waikiki Beach in 2017.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu said today that a combination of high tides and abnormally high sea levels will produce nuisance coastal flooding over the next couple of days throughout the Hawaiian island.

The flooding will be mainly during the afternoon and evening, forecasters said.

“Impacts may include flooding of beaches that are normally dry, some minor coastal erosion, and salt water inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps, and other coastal infrastructure,” they said.

Forecasters said that dry trade-wind conditions will continue into Monday, followed by increasing showers Monday night through Wednesday.

Tropical moisture will be approaching the state from the southeast later in the week and may bring some rain to the islands, they said.
