Thanks for the concern! While these things are unpredictable by nature, the forecast models call for a gradual weakening of Felicia as the storm makes its way over cooler water. Right now, it's at a category 4, with sustained winds of 140 mph.

The NWS predicts building surf ahead of Felicia on east-facing shores over the weekend, then increasing winds and heavy showers Sunday evening, into Monday morning. Hopefully by that time, Felicia will have been downgraded to a tropical storm or disturbance, and not cause too much trouble.

It's still about 1,500 mi. E/SE of Hawaii and the probability cone is still pretty wide from the forecasted track, so who knows. We should have a better idea by Saturday.

Given our economy, we really don't need this right now, especially as legislators are mulling over raiding the State's hurricane fund as a means to help balance the budget...

Hello From Not-So-Sunny Hawaii

Felicia was downgraded to an area of remnant low pressure this afternoon, as it begins to pass through the center of the state.

We dodged a bullet with this one and the NWS was pretty spot-on with the forecast, calling for Felicia to continue to weaken as the storm continued it's run into cooler water. Then, upper level winds flowing counter to the storm track and prevailing tradewinds, sheared the top of the storm off, hastening the storm's demise. Kudos to the Central Pacfic Hurricane Center for really keeping tabs on this thing. We're only halfway through hurricane season, so we may be in for more action.

As of this afternoon, just a lot of humidity, some scattered showers, and some low-hanging clouds in the mountains. Shot these during my commute home. Not the finest scenery shots, but these are for you, Frozen E. :D You didn't miss much.

Leeward coast got nailed by a 'surpirise' storm coming out of the sw late last night. Rained so hard and no streets lights - could only do about 20mph on the H3 :confused:
