As of 5 p.m. Friday, Olivia was circulating 100 mph winds as it churned some 1,290 miles east of Hilo, according to forecasters with the Miami-based National Hurricane Center. "This swell will continue to build early next week, likely producing warning level surf during mid week". Clouds and showers will favor windward and Mauka areas today, then shift over to the interior and leeward locations each afternoon starting Saturday. The eyewall convection has warmed during the past several hours, with some breaks noted in the northwestern quadrant.
Olivia would be the second tropical system to hit the Hawaiian Islands this year. The new intensity forecast is basically an update of the previous one and is close to the consensus. A building subtropical ridge should steer the hurricane basically due westward for the next couple of days, and the model guidance is in good agreement during this time.
Mayor Kirk Caldwell this morning urged residents and visitors to remain vigilant about the threat of Hurricane Olivia and asked people not to hoard supplies. The system is projected to take a slight west-southwest turn Monday night into Tuesday. "I can't find another example of a hurricane/typhoon nearing Guam, Hawaii & the eastern United States at nearly exactly the same time (days ~ 4,5,6 respectively)". Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 120 miles.
