Tropics Update: The big island of Hawaii (Hilo) has never been hit by a hurricane (in recorded history). But will Madeline be the first land falling hurricane there? It is weakening now, and if it hits Hawaii, it will likely be a Category 1 hurricane with winds just over 74 mph. A second storm, Lester, looks to move closer to Hawaii by the weekend. This storm will likely curve and move to the northwest of the islands.
Tropical depression 9 will likely become Tropical Storm Hermine today! It's been churning in the Gulf now for more than 24 hours, and it's finally getting it's act together. It is not expected to reach hurricane strength, but it will be close. Hurricane watches are out for the panhandle of Florida as the storm moves closer. This system will then slide up part of the eastern US over the holiday weekend.
