Gusty winds on the Big Island but no landfall for the category 3 storm.
The storm is expected to weaken as it continues west. It’ll be south of the Big Island early Wednesday.
Weak El Nino conditions — water warming on the surface of the ocean along the equator — could make the next few months stormier.
NASA released two videos of Hurricane Lester shot from the International Space Station orbiting 257 miles above Earth.
Not only is it the earliest on record in the central Pacific, it’s also moved closer to the equator than any other Northern Hemisphere cyclone on record.
It depends on where the cyclone forms in relation to 140 degrees longitude. Malia follows Kilo and Loke.
The latest forecasts keep the storm “well to the west” of Hawaii for at least the next five days. Meanwhile, more disturbances develop.
