Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

Tropical Storm Felicia update

Weather Channel Update on Tropical Storm Felicia as she approaches Hawaii.

Felicia is fighting both shear and cooler sea surface temperatures and may likely degrade further before making landfall.

    It is likely that Felicia will be either a tropical depression or possibly a weak tropical storm as it moves through or near Hawaii later Monday and Tuesday. At this time, it appears impacts to Aloha State will be mostly minor.

    Over the next 48 hours expect gusty winds, especially in the higher elevations, along the coast, and in the channels between islands. Rainfall could be locally heavy resulting in localized flooding issues. A high surf warning is posted for eastern facing beaches where waves will peak in the 10 to 15 foot range.

    A tropical storm watch is in effect for The Big Island of Hawaii, Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, and Oahu. A flash flood watch is also posted for these islands.
