SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
* Hawaii County.

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
within the watch area. A Hurricane Watch is typically issued 48
hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical storm
force winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or
dangerous.

Interests elsewhere in the main Hawaiian Islands should monitor
the progress of Madeline. Watches may be required for additional
Hawaiian Islands later today or tonight.

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


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 PM HST (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Madeline was
located near latitude 18.7 North, longitude 145.9 West. Madeline is
moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h). A gradual
turn toward the west is expected by Tuesday, with little change in
forward speed.

Maximum sustained winds are near 115 mph (185 km/h) with higher
gusts. Madeline is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale. Little change in intensity is expected through
Tuesday, with weakening forecast thereafter.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115
miles (185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 966 mb (28.53 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Winds to hurricane force are possible over Hawaii County on
Wednesday.

SURF: Swells generated by Madeline are expected to reach the
Hawaiian Islands over the next couple of days, possibly becoming
damaging along some coastlines Wednesday and Thursday.

RAIN: Heavy rains associated with Madeline may reach Hawaii County
on Wednesday, and may impact other Hawaiian Islands later Wednesday
into Friday. This rainfall may lead to dangerous flash floods and
mudslides.
