Flossie Impacting Hawaii Tonight

| July 29, 2013 @ 7:52 pm

Overnight Flossie will be crossing the Hawaiian Islands as a minimal tropical storm. Flossie has weakened the last 24 hours as she approaches our 50th state.

Maximum sustained winds are at 40 mph with some higher gusts. The main threat from the system will be rough surf and the chance for flooding. Much of Hawaii has been under drought conditions lately, the rain will be very beneficial but this could be too much of a good thing. Mud slides are a serious threat on the high mountains of the islands.

Flossie should continue to weaken over the next 24 hours and will be impacting every island in the chain as she continues her westward movement at 15-20 mph. Conditions should begin to improve for the islands by later in the day on Tuesday.
