Tropical Storm Olivia will bring heavy rain, strong winds, and large swells to the Hawaiian Islands over the next few days. Olivia is located 320 miles east-northeast of Hilo and 470 miles east of Honolulu. The storm continues to move westward at 10 mph. Winds are sustained at 65 mph and little change in intensity is expected as the cyclone crosses the islands Wednesday night. Tropical Storm Warnings continue for Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and the Big Island. A Tropical Storm Watch remains in effect for Kauai and Niihau. High surf alerts have been posted for the eastern facing shorelines for the large surf expected. Tropical storm conditions are expected over Maui County and the Big Island starting later today or tonight (Tuesday). Tropical storm winds will push over Oahu and Kauai on Wednesday. Olivia is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 10 to 15 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of near 20 inches. This may produce life-threatening flash flooding. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
