Massive surf for north-facing shores due Sunday

HONOLULU (KHON2) - 
A giant north-northwest swell is headed to the islands. 

Surf is expected to rapidly build early Sunday morning, peak Sunday evening into Sunday night at giant levels and steadily decrease Monday into Tuesday. 

Due to the combination of the giant surf,strong northerly winds, and near peak monthly high tides, overwashof low-lying coastal areas and roadways is likely Sunday through Monday, with the most vulnerable time frame around the high tidecycle Sunday night.

Also, significant beach erosion can beexpected and strong harbor surges may cause damage to boats andinfrastructure along north and west facing coastlines and harbors.
