A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are
expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within the
next 36 to 48 hours.

Monument should monitor the progress of this system.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor
products issued by the National Weather Service office in
Honolulu Hawaii.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM HST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Douglas was
located near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 158.8 West. Douglas is
moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h). This 
general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days, 
with a slight turn to the west and an increase in forward speed. 

Maximum sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher
gusts. Weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Douglas 
will remain a hurricane until it passes west of Kauai. 

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles
(185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Hurricane conditions are expected across northern portions
of Kauai tonight. Due to the steep terrain of the islands,
localized strong wind gusts are expected.

SURF:  Large swells generated by Douglas will affect the Hawaiian
Islands tonight, producing life-threatening and potentially
damaging surf along exposed shores.

RAINFALL:  Rainfall associated with Douglas is expected to
affect portions of the main Hawaiian Islands into Monday.
Total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches with locally higher
amounts are possible, with the greatest rainfall in elevated
terrain on Kauai. This rain may result in flash flooding and land
slides, as well as rapid water level rises on small streams.

Key messages for Douglas can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header HFOTCDCP2 and WMO header WTPA32 PHFO.


NEXT ADVISORY
-------------
Next intermediate advisory at 200 AM HST.
Next complete advisory at 500 AM HST.
