Many thanks for creating the new thread, chris9277.  I'll do my best to have a weather report posted
in time for either tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday) or late tomorrow night (around this time). It's doubtful
I'll have a new graphics page for Hawaii done in time though, so it might just be my text template with
the weather icons seen in my past reports.

Jim Cantore is one lucky man where he gets to work in Hawaii.  However, it obviously won't be for fun
and games. I'm trying to complete my graphics package very late tonight when I return home and have
a report posted as soon as possible.

Sorry for the wait, but after some problems with adjusting all the graphics to make them flaw-free,
here is my weather report for Hawaii as of 6:55 AM Hawaiian-Aleutian Standard Time.
At the time of when those weather observations were complied, a Tropical Storm Warning was in effect
for the Big Island of Hawaii.  At the time of this post, it has been dropped. I'm keeping the weather bulletin
graphic page because it was still relevant at the time of those weather observations.

It's just after sunrise and Hurricane Flossie has been downgraded to tropical storm status as it passed just south
of the Big Island with some rain and windy at times on mainly the south side.  As the storm continues to weaken,
it will remain on a western track bringing some scattered showers statewide and breezy conditions in most areas.
Temperatures that were in the 90s yesterday will be in the 80s later today.  In fact, even after Flossie's long gone,
the threat of showers and even an isolated thunderstorm is possible for at least the next four days.
Temperatures will remain constant in the upper 80s for peak readings.

Here are a few news items to catch you up on today's weather in Hawaii concerning Tropical Storm Flossie.

The weather over the next week is expected to be warm for a good portion of Hawaii with a minimal chance of precipitation for the most part, making it good vacationing weather.
