Re: On the Big Island?

On it looks like madaline became maddy and just skirted the southern edge of the island. Is Lester Lester Hawaii Molester still out there?

Re: On the Big Island?

Just down to tropical storm warnings. I lived there for 7 years. There was always the occasional threat. All it meant for us was that after the winds, we had to walk around our property picking up palm frons.

Re: On the Big Island?

Kona side never gets anything from the hurricanes. The two 13,000 mountains either divert the storms around the island or tear them apart leaving nothing, not even rain for our side of the Island. The next one, is it Lester, is tracking just to the north of the Island currently a very strong Cat 2 hurricane. Expected to pass through on Saturday. May bring a bit of bad weather to Hamakua Coast of the Big Island and Maui but still too early to predict its exact path. Right now looks like it will pass far enough to the north not to really effect the Islands.

Hopefully no one sailed for the mainland in the last week or so as they may get beaten up pretty bad. It's is not predicted to weaken significantly till it gets to about the latitude of SF and is predicted to track pretty much what a boat would sail to get around the high. Only good thing is winds should be southerly as the storm tracks to the north and then westerly and wrap around the high for a quick sail on the final stretch home.
