Re: Special East Pac Forecast Lounge: Potential Double Trouble Iselle & Julio

Aloha Friends! And Mahalos for Posting re: "Special East Pac Forecast Lounge: Potential Double Trouble Iselle & Julio"

It is certainly shaping up to be an interesting year! Latest Computer Models (as of Noon, Hawaii Standard Time, Monday, Aug. 3rd) now has Current CAT 4 Hurricane 'Iselle' weakening (fortunately) to a mid-range Tropical Storm of 50 kts. or so, while passing through or very near to, the Main Hawaiian Islands, sometime by this Thursday and Friday. Needless to say, Hawaii is positively abuzz with talk of, and preparation for, this storm.

And, of even *Greater Concern*, as alluded to above, is soon-to-be Hurricane 'Julio', which is expected to follow a track remarkably similar to 'Iselle', but Maintaining itself as a (possibly intensifying?) CAT 2 Hurricane upon it's Approach in the Islands.

That would be Very Unfortunate, of course, as Hawaii is NOT well prepared for a Cyclone of that Magnitude, and it's been Many Decades since Maui & Oahu have had a Direct Impact from a Hurricane. More later ....
