ranges from 16 to 36 percent. This represents a general slight
downward trend since the last forecast.
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 island of Maui...and will result in surf
heights of 6 to 12 feet today and reaching up to 15 to 20 feet on
Monday through Tuesday. The high surf is expected to create
dangerous currents. Some coastal inundation of low lying areas is
expected especially at high tide.
total rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches...with isolated amounts
near 6 inches mainly in areas of higher terrain...are possible.
