Hawaii Storm

Updated: 2/14/2019 8:25:51 AM
The weather system on the West coast interact with a deep plume of tropical moisture from near Hawaii bringing heavy rain along the central and southern Californian coast. Coastal and lower elevation rain, along with heavy mountain snow, is forecast to continue across much of the western states as multiple fronts move onshore through the end of the week. Conditions will be favorable for very heavy rain along the central and southern California coast and nearby mountains, which will maintain an elevated risk for flash flooding, and possible debris flows near recent wildfire burn scar areas. Widespread heavy snowfall is expected from the Oregon Cascades to the Sierra Nevada, where 30 to 90 cm of snow is likely through the end of the week, and additional heavy snow is anticipated for the northern Rockies as the moisture plume moves inland, according to NWS.

A deadly winter storm battered Hawaii over the weekend, bringing dangerous surf conditions, heavy snow and damaging winds.

A monstrous 307 km/h wind gust was recorded on the peak of Mauna Kea on the Big Island Sunday, the weather service said.

Waves near Waimea Bay on the north shore of Oahu surpassed 18 meters Sunday afternoon, meteorologist Gavin Shigesato with the National Weather Service Honolulu forecast office told USA TODAY. A 66-year-old California man died Friday after getting stuck in rough ocean conditions off northwest Maui, Hawaii News Now said.

A home in Halenani Place in Kihei was damaged when a large tree fell on it, Maui officials said. No one was injured.

Downed trees and power lines blocked many roads. Strong winds knocked a large tree onto two cars Saturday morning in downtown Honolulu.

Tens of thousands of customers lost electricity at times over the weekend. At one point Sunday afternoon, the entire island of Maui had no power, the Star Advertiser reported. Up to 30,000 people on Oahu may have lost power Sunday, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said.

But the worst of the storm should be over, the weather service said Monday: The storm "will lift northeastward and away from the state over the next couple of days, resulting in diminishing winds across the island chain," according to the weather service.
