Lane now moving toward the west and will pass south of the Western Hawaiian Islands

All coastal watches and warnings for the Hawaiian Islands have been discontinued. Interests in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands should monitor the progress of Lane.

Tropical Storm Lane is centered as of 11 a.m. HST (5 p.m. EDT) about 145 miles (235 km) southwest of Honolulu and about 160 miles (255 km) south of Lihue. On the forecast track, the center of Lane is expected to pass about 150 miles south of Kauai later today. Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Lingering moisture associated with Tropical Storm Lane will produce excessive rainfall this weekend, which could lead to additional flash flooding and landslides. Lane is expected to produce additional rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches across windward Big Island and Maui and 3 to 5 inches elsewhere. Localized storm total amounts well in excess of 40 inches have already been observed along the windward side of the Big Island. High surf is expected along exposed south and east shorelines of the main Hawaiian Islands today.
