National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Brenchley says ocean temperatures around Hawaii are about 3 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal.

This year, ocean temperatures around Hawaii are about 3 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, said Chris Brenchley, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu.
Brenchley, from the National Weather Service, said it's not known why waters around Hawaii and other parts of the northeast Pacific are warmer than normal this year. This warm water - nicknamed "The Blob" - is coinciding with El Nino, which is a general warming of parts of the Pacific that changes weather worldwide. But Brenchley said it isn't the result of El Nino.

"Expect wind gusts to 50 mph in the more elevated, exposed areas, even with the center of Ana at some distance to the west," said Chris Brenchley, a meteorologist with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

"It's a very strong, high-end tropical storm," said Chris Brenchley, Warning Coordinator for the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu.
Ana remains south of a ridge of high pressure and encountered windshear overnight into Wednesday that kept the storm from strengthening into a hurricane, Brenchley said. Windshear often helps tear storms apart as they near the Hawaiian Islands.
"We expect that windshear will be on the decrease as we go through the day and we are forecasting that Tropical Storm Ana will become a hurricane sometime later today (Wednesday) and into this evening," said Brenchley.
Once upgraded to a hurricane, Ana is forecast to pass over the Hawaiian Islands as a Category 1 storm. A Category 1 hurricane packs winds ranging from 74 mph to 95 mph.
"We are expecting Ana to maintain hurricane strength as it slowly moves across the Hawaiian Islands," Brenchley said.
Surf and wind are expected to begin impacting the Big Island on Friday. The southern part of Hawaii Island is expected to see 15- to 30-foot waves. The southeast-facing shores of the Big Island will see the largest waves associated with the system.
"The entire state is under an area where there is a threat of significant winds, strong winds, also heavy rainfall is a good possibility as Ana moves through, particularly as it begins to approach the big island," Brenchley said.

"What modulates the weather here in Hawaii strongly is the temperature of the ocean water," said Chris Brenchley, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "Our surrounding ocean waters are running anywhere from 2 to 4 degrees Fahrenheit above normal."
That has led to air temperatures that are 2 to 3 degrees above normal, he said.
At humidity levels of 60 percent, weather officials advise extreme caution when the temperature reaches 86 degrees, meaning prolonged exposure can cause heat stroke or heat cramps, Brenchley said.
