DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 1100 PM HST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lane was
located near latitude 19.4 North, longitude 158.5 West. Lane is
moving toward the north-northwest near 3 mph (6 km/h), and this
general motion is expected to continue through Saturday morning.
This will likely be followed by a turn toward the west with an
increase in forward speed starting Saturday afternoon. This
westward motion is forecast to continue through Sunday. On the
forecast track, the center of Lane will pass south of Kauai and
Niihau on Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher
gusts. Additional weakening is forecast through this weekend, and
Lane may become a remnant low by Sunday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 130 miles (215 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.30 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are still expected in and near
outer rain bands that will affect Oahu, Maui County, and the Big
Island tonight into Saturday. Tropical storm conditions are possible
on Kauai starting Saturday.
RAINFALL: Lane's outer rain bands will produce excessive rainfall
this weekend, which could lead to additional flash flooding and
landslides. Lane is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
10 to 20 inches in some areas. Localized storm total amounts in
excess of 40 inches have already been observed along the windward
side of the Big Island.
SURF: Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian
Islands tonight. These swells will produce high surf along exposed
south and east shorelines through early Saturday.
TORNADO: Isolated tornados are possible from tonight into early
Saturday across parts of the Big Island, Maui County and Oahu.
