Hawaii residents on edge again as Hurricane Olivia heads for the islands


Tropical Storm or Hurricane Watches may be required for portions of the Hawaiian Islands later today or tonight. Olivia is forecast to stay a hurricane for the next couple of days while the system is experiencing light shear, balanced by very dry air aloft and marginal but warming SSTs. As of 2 p.m. Friday, it was pinpointed about 1,375 miles east of Hilo and 1,550 miles east of Honolulu. Olivia is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 miles per hour, and is expected to keep on this path until it makes a gradual turn toward the west is expected Saturday night or Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said. "We want everyone, especially Oahu to the Big Island to be preparing for a possible direct hit from Olivia", Robert Ballard, science and operations officer at Central Pacific Hurricane Center, said.

Weather impacts from Olivia are projected to initially affect northeast and east shores throughout the Hawaiian Islands. At 5 p.m. Saturday, Norman was 495 miles north of Hilo.

A gradual turn toward the WSW is expected starting late Monday.

Now a Category 1 hurricane more than 1,200 miles east of Honolulu, Olivia is expected to weaken into a tropical storm by the time it reaches the islands late Tuesday or early Wednesday. "The seas and surf forecast over the middle part of next week will be highly dependent on the track and intensity Olivia takes as it nears the area".
