NWS: Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea Above 8000 feet... winds 20 to 40 mph today, with localized gusts over 70 mph. Winds increasing tonight, peaking at 35 to 75 mph with localized gusts over 120 mph tonight and early Monday. ---- ...VERY WINDY CONDITIONS AND COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO MONDAY... Winds are expected to increase late today and tonight as a surface low develops to the northeast of the islands. A Wind Advisory is in effect for Kauai and Oahu late today through Monday, and depending on the exact track and strength of this low, the advisory may be expanded to portions of Maui and the the lower slopes of the Big Island. Coastal flooding is possible tonight through Monday along exposed north and west facing shores due to a combination of strong winds and warning-level surf. The greatest potential for coastal flooding impacts will be during the peak daily high tide, which will occur during the early morning hours between midnight and daybreak. Coastal impacts may include significant beach erosion, flooding of beaches that normally remain dry and overwash onto vulnerable low-lying coastal roads and other coastal infrastructure. ---- More info: https://www.weather.gov/hfo/
