Thinking good thoughts for all of Hawaii. Here's hoping that she doesn't turn into a hurricane. I know this has nothing to do with Ukeing but it sure looks like there are a lot of Ukers in Hawaii, so be safe!

Thanks for the well wishes. Hoping it fizzles out before it gets too strong. It is still a Tropical Storm Watch as of tonight.

I hope everyone stays safe. One good thing to come from the rain today was a rainbow right over Waikiki beach!

There was a perfect rainbow by Kapiolani Park yesterday around 9 AM - actually, it was a double for a bit. Stay safe, everyone.

We're just getting the first bands of rain now on the east side of the Big Island. This BTW after the most gorgeous weekend I can remember in years. We're getting wet for sure but Flossie ain't the gal she used to be. Here's the word as of 11:00 am Hawaii time:

Current intensity estimates indicate that Flossie is a minimal tropical
storm at this time. Continued weakening is expected as shear and
interaction with mountainous terrain on Maui and The Big Island
impact the system. Flossie is forecast to weaken to a depression
within the next 12 hours and become a remnant low within 48 hours.
The track guidance is tightly clustered with most models indicating
a west to west northwest track over the next several days. The
current forecast track has changed little from the previous
forecast and follows along with most guidance. This would bring the
system over Maui County later today or early tonight and pass by
just south of Oahu and Kauai County later tonight and Tuesday.

Good to hear that Flossie downgraded before hitting land and that everyone is good and no major damage. :)
