Hurricane Iselle is now a major category 3 storm. It continues to move west at 9 mph. It will lose strength as it hits higher wind shear and cooler waters Tuesday and into Wednesday. We’ll likely start seeing effects on the Big Island Thursday afternoon lasting through Friday morning. The rest of the state will see effects late Thursday and all day Friday.
Flooding is the biggest threat however it’s a relatively fast moving storm so the swift motion should keep this somewhat in check. Still, flood prone areas could see big flooding impacts.
Depending on the track we could see tropical storm force winds. There could be a small radius of sustained winds 40-50 mph within a 50-75 mile radius around the center of circulation.
