  • CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER           The forecast track for Hurricane Olivia as of 5 a.m. today

As of 5 p.m. Olivia was about 595 miles east-northeast of Hilo, packing maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

The NHC said Olivia will weaken further over the weekend, and possibly downgrade to a tropical storm by Tuesday. Norman was moving north-northwest at 9 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour. Hurricane Isaac is now located 1,305 miles west of the Windward Islands with sustained wind speeds of 75 mph.

National Weather Service forecasters predict light and variable winds through Monday as Norman continues to move northward away from the state. A watch means residents should prepare for severe weather conditions within 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds and conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky.

There are no warnings or advisories in effect at this time.

In the latest five-day forecast, the entire state is under the "cone of uncertainty" for Wednesday.

The US National Hurricane Centre is urging people in Hawaii to prepare for its arrival in the coming days. "The majority of inland flood fatalities occur in vehicles".

It's expected to be a tropical storm by the time it makes landfall.

It's approaching the islands from a completely different direction than last month's Hurricane Lane, which dumped record amounts of rainfall on the Big Island. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky. Even if Olivia arrives as a tropical storm, as predicted, Hawaii is in danger of experiencing high winds, heavy rains, high surf, storm surges and flooding that threaten to harm communities and cause extensive damage to public and private property across the state.
