Hurricane Carlos continues to strengthen
The good news is that Carlos does not appear to be a threat to Hawaii, although it is still too early to say so for certain. The Weather Channel is reporting that westerly winds will likely break up Carlos long before the storm comes within range of the islands. The remants of the storm should pass to the south of Hawaii and just result in some high waves.

The storm track, wind shear and steering currents will have to be watched closely during the next week before we can say for certain whether this storm will affect Hawaii.
