    Last prog shows in may pass close to Kauai, but by then it is forecast to be downgraded to a tropical storm. Also note the "cone" shown on the chart is the range of possible paths, with the black line being the most likely forecast path based on current models. The cone is NOT the projected hurricane wind impacts.

    ^^^ Way better image. I got the one I posted from a cell phone post a friend made on Facebook, and it didn't blow up very well. We'll see how the Islands fare. They've had enough crazy weather for awhile.

    I think they are pretty uncertain at this point. They have models showing completely different outcomes.

    One model does show going over Molokai. https://www.google.com/search?q=hur...AUIESgB&biw=1024&bih=698#imgrc=g5rE0kmp3JzTfM:

    The yellow line seems to go over the Wavecrest. But there a ton of other lines.

    We should have a better idea by tomorrow.

    We’re at the Waiohai right now and there’s lots of talk around the BBQs, but nothing issued by the resort just yet. Could be interesting as we’ve been here during a flash flood warning before and a lot of water passes through the property.

    11:00 p.m. update did not look good .... while we could still dodge the bullet ... I fully expect tomorrow to be gas station, water, electric generator, and toilet paper day .... this is when a lot of people start buying all kinds of stuff .... if you need gas for the car ... go fill up now

    Yup, I remember that, especially the TP rationing in the 70's when there was a long stevedores strike LOL. I better remind my brother in Honolulu about the storm.

    Still with Lane pssing up on leeward side, Kona, Waikoloa, Kihei, Kaanapali, Kapolei, Waipahu, Waianae coast etc would get strongest winds, rain and tidal surges.
    Hope Lane veers west west west!!!

    Hurricane Watches Issued For Hawaii And Maui Counties

    upload_2018-8-21_11-53-55.png

    Key Points

    SUMMARY OF 11 AM ET...1500 UTC...INFORMATION
    ----------------------------------------------
    LOCATION...14.1N 152.3W
    ABOUT 450 MI...725 KM SSE OF KAILUA-KONA HAWAII
    ABOUT 620 MI...995 KM SE OF HONOLULU HAWAII
    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...150 MPH...240 KM/H
    PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 275 DEGREES AT 12 MPH...19 KM/H
    MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...950 MB...28.06 INCHES

    WATCHES AND WARNINGS
    --------------------
    CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:
    A Hurricane Watch has been issued for Hawaii county and Maui
    County.

    SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:
    A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
    *Maui County...including the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kahoolawe
    *Hawaii County

    A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
    within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before
    the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds,
    conditions that make outside preparations difficult or dangerous.
    Interests elsewhere in the main Hawaiian Islands, and across the
    Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, should continue to closely monitor
    the progress of Hurricane Lane. Additional Tropical Storm or
    Hurricane Watches will likely be issued later today or tonight.
    Hazards Affecting the United States or its Territories

    WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible within the Hurricane Watch
    area on Thursday.
    RAINFALL: Excessive rainfall associated with Lane is expected
    to affect portions of the Hawaiian Islands from Wednesday into the
    weekend, leading to flash flooding and landslides. Lane is expected
    to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated
    maximum amounts of 20 inches over the Hawaiian Islands.
    SURF: Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian
    Islands this week. These swells will produce large and potentially
    damaging surf along exposed south and west facing shorelines.

    Tropical Storm Wind Probabilities
    Hilo 26%
    South Point 75%
    Kailua-Kona 71%
    Kahului 42%
    Hana 58%
    Lanai City 70%
    Kaunakakai 67%
    Barking Sands 55%
    Honolulu 49%
    Niihau 54%

    Well....this is the latest. Not good news, but not the worst.
    Positive thoughts for safe passage.
    I hope the volcanoes breath will keep the storm south and keep people safe...

    It has strengthened to a Cat 5, but expected to weaken towards Saturday. Will cause lots of rainfall, flooding and surf damage. Going up the worst case side of Hawaii :(, following edge of high pressure from north.

    Hope for high pressure to push southward.

    The Kilauea eruption has paused or ended...


    HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
    U.S. Geological Survey
    Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 1:06 PM HST (Tuesday, August 21, 2018, 23:06 UTC)


    KILAUEA VOLCANO (VNUM #332010)
    19°25'16" N 155°17'13" W, Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m)
    Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
    Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

    Kīlauea summit and lower East Rift Zone

    Seismicity and ground deformation are negligible at the summit of Kīlauea Volcano. On the volcano's lower East Rift Zone (LERZ), only a few ocean entries are oozing lava; laze plumes are minimal. Sulfur dioxide emission rates at both the summit and LERZ are drastically reduced; the combined rate is lower than at any time since late 2007.

    The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) will continue to closely monitor Kīlauea's seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation, and maintain visual surveillance of the summit and LERZ.

    HVO will continue to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed. The next status report will be issued tomorrow morning unless significant changes occur.

    Hurricane is stronger but the models look better. EXCEPT for one by my house.

    [​IMG]


    I think you should be ok over there. I have MKO unit in my II cart right now. But, I am thinking I better stay at my house because it will be high winds, but hopefully not devastating.

    The stores started to get lines last night. If you head out for food, I would go Kapolei Foodland. If they are out of water, buy some other drinks. You should be fine.

    We have 3 grandkids staying in Lahaina now with their father. They were able to move to a hotel away from the beach. We just left our MOC first floor ocean front on Saturday. WOW.

    Looks better....let's hope it stays that way.

    @JIMinNC I was just making an anecdotal remark.....you're correct of course.

    Now, if the volcano does spontaneously erupt and push the storm away.....that would truly be a news story.

    I knew you were being anecdotal, just wanted to make sure that no one put too much faith in Madame Pele. She appears to be resting.
