Hurricane Douglas has passed by and is now moving away from the Hawaiian Islands. The eye of the storm passed north of the islands out over open water. Douglas was a Category 4 storm, but it has weakened, as expected, as it approached the islands. Most peak gusts were in the 35-45 mph range on the islands (mainly north shore) and the heaviest rainfall remained off shore. Here’s current Hawaii weather observations.
The storm will weaken and become just a small tropical depression as it moves into the Central Pacific.
