Hurricane Ignacio strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane Saturday and its current forecast track takes it just north of The Big Island Monday. While it is not a direct threat to make landfall in Hawaii, a track slightly to the south of its current forecast track could deteriorate weather conditions in the state. See the forecast track

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a

* Flood Advisory for the island of Hawaii in Hawaii County

* until 700 PM HST

* at 348 PM HST... radar showed heavy rain near Holualoa... or about 7
miles northeast of Kailua-Kona. Other areas of heavy rain were
developing near Waikii and Waipio Valley. The areas of heavy rain
were nearly stationary.

* Other locations in the advisory include but are not limited to
Pohakuloa Camp... Mauna Kea Summit... Keahole Point... Waipio
Valley... Waikoloa Village... Waikoloa beach resort... Waikii... Upolu

Ookala... Mahukona... Kona Village resort... Kawaihae... Kamuela...
Honokaa and Hawi.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay away from streams... drainage ditches and low lying areas prone
to flooding.

Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due
to ponding... reduced visibility and poor braking action.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle or on foot.
Turn around... Don/T drown.

This advisory may need to be extended beyond 700 PM HST if heavy rain

... High surf warning remains in effect until 6 PM HST Tuesday...

A high surf warning remains in effect until 6 PM HST Tuesday.

* Surf... along east facing shores... rising to 12 to 20 feet
tonight and Tuesday.

* Impacts... very high... expect ocean water surging and sweeping
across beaches... coastal benches... and lava flows creating the
potential for impacts to coastal properties and
infrastructure... including roadways. Powerful longshore and
rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking
waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and
channels causing challenging boat handling.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

These dangerous conditions mean that only highly experienced
persons should enter the water. Inexperienced persons should
remain off beaches and adjacent beachfront areas. Large breaking
surf... significant shorebreak... and dangerous currents make
entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water
could face significant injury or death.

Tropical Storm Watch
Statement as of 11:59 AM HST on August 30, 2015

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

... Precautionary/preparedness actions...
precautionary/preparedness actions...

Loose objects such as lawn furniture... garbage cans... and other
items should be secured or stored indoors.

... Probability of tropical storm/hurricane conditions...
based on the latest forecast... there is little chance for
hurricane conditions. Also... the chance for tropical storm
conditions at this time is below 12 percent. This represents a
general downward trend since the last forecast.

... Winds...
although the latest forecast is for sustained winds to remain
below tropical storm force of 39 mph... 34 knots... only a small
change in the track of Ignacio could result in higher winds.

... Storm surge and storm tide...
swells generated by Ignacio will increase along east and southeast
facing shores of The Big Island... and will result in surf heights
of 15 to 20 feet through Tuesday. The high surf is expected to
create dangerous currents. Some coastal inundation of low lying
areas... including but not limited to the Kapoho area... is expected
especially at high tide.

... Inland flooding...
total rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches... with isolated amounts
near 5 inches mainly in areas of higher terrain... are possible.
