A storm sending large, destructive surf and locally damaging winds is approaching the Hawaiian Islands this weekend. Our Meteorologist Steve Glazier shows you the timing, how strong the wind will gust, how high the waves will crest and the storm impacts in this short two-minute video:
We’ve included the storm forecast impacts here as well, to drive the point home that this will be a very strong storm!

The storm will only pass about 200 miles to the northeast of Kauai and Oahu while moving slowly Sunday.
