HalolaBy Maui Now Staff

A tropical storm has formed from Tropical Depression One-C, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center announced yesterday evening.

Tropical Storm Halola is far west of Hawai’i–more than 430 miles to the southwest of Johnston Island and 1,440 miles to the east of Wake Island.

According to CPHC, maximum sustained winds are at 40 miles per hour as the system moves west at 12 mph.

Tropical Depression Two-C continues to be monitored and is currently far south of Hawai‘i Island, approximately 610 miles to the south-southeast of Honolulu and about 970 miles to the east-southeast of Johnston Island.


As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the National Weather Service continued to forecast that remnants of Post-Tropical Cyclone Ela will move through the islands over the weekend. Tradewinds are expected to be disrupted and muggy weather and locally heavy showers have been forecasted.


High surf along east shores that was generated from Post-Tropical Cyclone Ela is expected to heighten through tonight. The swells should be below advisory levels before sunrise Sunday.
