DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 800 PM HST (0600 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lane was
located near latitude 19.2 North, longitude 158.4 West. Lane
appears to be nearly stationary, but it is expected to begin
moving slowly toward the northwest later tonight, followed by a
turn toward the west with an increase in forward speed starting
Saturday. This westward motion is forecast to continue through
this weekend. On the forecast track, the center of Lane will pass
south of Kauai and Niihau on Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher
gusts. Weakening is forecast through this weekend, and Lane may
become a remnant low by late Saturday or Sunday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 985 mb (29.09 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are still expected in and near
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: Excessive rainfall remains possible into the 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 up to 40 inches
are possible, mainly along the windward side of the Big Island where
over 30 inches of rain has already fallen in some areas.
SURF: Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian
Islands into the weekend. These swells will produce high surf along
exposed south and east shorelines through Saturday.
TORNADO: Isolated tornados are possible from tonight into early
Saturday across parts of the Big Island, Maui County and Oahu.
