...Tropical storm watch remains in effect...
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.
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.
total rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches...with isolated amounts
near 5 inches mainly in areas of higher terrain...are possible.
