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

High Surf Warning
Statement as of 3:41 AM HST on August 30, 2015

... 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 15 to 20 feet today.

* Timing... today through 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 5:32 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. Have supplies on hand
and be ready for power outages. Evacuate if ordered by local
officials.


... 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 ranges from 11 to 26 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... 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 today 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 2 to 5 inches... with isolated amounts
near 6 inches mainly in areas of higher terrain... are possible.
