The Lull Between T.S. Madeline and Hurricane Lester

Hurricane Madeline was downgraded to a tropical storm and swept the island yesterday. There were heavy rains and high winds, especially in Waimea, Kawaihae, Waikoloa, and South Point (Ka Lae). Most of the town was closed as a precaution. Hurricane Lester is nearing the island. As of yesterday afternoon, it was a category three hurricane on a west-northwest path. Lester is forecast to weaken to a category one as it passes by the island to the north.

We had a nice day today and are hoping that the hurricane veers away from the Islands.

Lester is passing to the north. As I type this (12:35 p.m.), it's overcast, but I don't expect the winds and rain brought by Madeline on Wednesday.
