Hurricane Daniel May Threaten Hawaii Waters

Hurricane Daniel continues to spin in the East Pacific, with winds at 90 MPH- equivalent to a moderate Category 1 hurricane.

The official National Hurricane Center forecast calls for Daniel to continue on a steady track eastward, and this track could affect the waters near Hawaii in several days. However, at that point, the forecast does call for significant weakening into a post-tropical depression. It should be noted, however, that a lot of time stands between now and the possible threat to Hawaii.

A suite of forecast models for Daniel suggest that the hurricane could move closer to Hawaii and actually make landfall. But once again, remember that a lot of time remains until this possible solution.
