    TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS ARE OUT FOR HAWAII'S BIG ISLAND AS "CALVIN", with its 45 MPH WINDS, HEAVY RAINS AND HIGH SEAS, APPROACHES




    Tropical Storm Calvin has bucked its trek across sub 82-deg f (28-deg C) waters and seen convective clusters blossom on its path toward Hawaii's Big Island--the southernmost and largest of the Hawaiian Island chain.


    Posted here are a series of graphics--including hourly forecast precip and wind frames from the National Weather Service's new hurricane forecast model--the "HAFS" model, whose acronym stands for "Hurricane Analysis and Forecast System".









    A tropical storm warning has been issued for the island. From the NWS Honolulu Office comes the following synopsis:

    "Wind speeds will increase rapidly from today through Wednesday as Tropical Storm Calvin produces strong and gusty winds as it passes near the Big Island and just south of Maui County, Oahu, and Kauai County.
    Damaging wind speeds are possible across most of the state as Calvin approaches and passes by each island.
    Heavy showers and flooding conditions are expected due to deep unstable tropical moisture forced up the windward mountain slopes of islands in Maui and Hawaii Counties.
    Calvin will likely weaken into a Tropical Depression by Wednesday and maintain a westward track moving away from the island chain by Wednesday night.

    Expect improving weather and wind conditions statewide by Thursday as we transition back to breezy trade wind pattern.
