“Here He Comes…Churning Toward our Isle. ‘Bes Choke Up on Water. But Hang Onto dat Smile. Hey, Hey He’s Guillermo, We All Know Where He Can Be Found. So You’d Better Get Ready. He May Be Comin’ to Your Town.” OK, try to get THAT version of the Monkees’ Theme out of your head.
Maui Weather Guru Glenn James reports: “Tropical Storm Guillermo (09E) remains active here in the central Pacific…although continues to weaken. Here’s a satellite image of this storm, along with the looping version…and finally what the computer models are showing. It still looks as if this tropical cyclone will move close to, or just to the northeast of the islands early Wednesday through Thursday…first on the Big Island.
“If the forecast track remains similar to what it is now, a reduced tropical storm Guillermo will bring his tropical weather our way through the mid-week period. If this occurs as presently forecast, we’ll find locally gusty tropical storm force (39-74 mph) winds across parts of the state then. The NWS will issue wind advisories with time, along with watches and warnings as Guillermo gets closer to our area.”
