Tropical Storm Flossie is heading toward our 50th state today. Most of the Hawaii Islands are under a tropical storm warning as Flossie moves westwards towards the Big Island and Maui today. Heavy rainfall and winds around 50-60mph can be expected. Winds must exceed 73mph to upgrade Flossie to a hurricane and this is unlikely. Flossie will lose strength as she interacts with the mountainous terrain of Hawaii.
