At 6:40 this morning, radar showed an area of thunderstorms producing strong winds that were 34 knots or greater located 18 nautical miles southwest of Lanai City.  The system was moving northeast at 35 knots.  An additional line of thunderstorms was also observed, moving northeast at 35 knots.

As a precautionary measure, mariners should seek safe harbor until the storm passes.  Mariners can expect gusty winds, locally higher seas, dangerous lightning, and reduced visibility in heavy rain.
