Carlos and Dolores

There are two hurricanes headed towards Hawaii right now.

Carlos--who is tuning down to a Tropical Storm and veering south away from the Islands...

and

Dolores--who is in hurricane status right now and in a direct path to the Islands.

Hey, look at the bright side - the wind-surfing should be outstanding!

Hopefully Dolores will veer off too. At least it's still pretty far away from Hawaii (according to stormpulse it is actually closer to you in WA (2100+ miles), than it is to HI (2800+ miles) - heck it's only 1800-odd miles from Denver.

Of course WA and CO are not in the path, but at least it has plenty of ocean to cover before it gets out there, lots of time for her to change course yet. You sort of need to plan for the possibility of encountering an occassional afternoon rainshower in Maui at this time of year anyway.

But, I'd still probably take a hat with a chinstrap just in case the winds kick up (the trade winds can get pretty blustery, even without a hurricane brewing)...
