Hurricane Madeline rapidly intensified from Sunday into Monday morning, and it may take a close swipe at parts of the Hawaiian Islands in the days ahead. Madeline's estimated peak surface winds increased from a 50 mph tropical storm Sunday morning, to a 125 mph Category 3 hurricane by Monday evening. A hurricane watch has been issued for Hawaii's Big Island. This means hurricane-force winds are possible within the warning area in the next 48 hours or less.
