Hurricane Douglas Tropical Cyclone Update
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI   EP082020
1211 AM HST Mon Jul 27 2020

...1200 AM HST POSITION UPDATE...
...HURRICANE DOUGLAS PASSING BY JUST TO THE NORTH OF KAUAI...

The eye of Hurricane Douglas is being tracked by the Molokai radar 
as it moves toward the west-northwest just north of Kauai. A 
Hurricane Hunter aircraft, which is currently flying in Douglas, 
indicated it had intensified slightly earlier this evening. The 
Hurricane Hunters will continue to provide valuable data as Douglas 
moves away from the Molokai radar, and it will be poorly sampled by 
the Kauai radar. Therefore, this will be the last Tropical Cyclone 
Update based on radar data. Note that there will be an Intermediate 
Public Advisory issued at 200 AM HST, followed by the next Complete 
Public Advisory at 500 AM HST.
