UPDATED (11 p.m. on 8/5/2015)

The Tropical Storm Watch has been cancelled. As of 11 p.m. Tropical Storm Guillermo was located about 190 miles northeast of Hilo, moving west-northwest near 10 mph.

Tropical Storm Guillermo currently has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. These tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 165 miles (260 km) from the center. The storm is being torn apart by strong vertical wind shear and is forecast to weaken to a Tropical Depression by Thursday night.

A high surf Warning has been issued for south, north and east shores of Hawaii Island due to surf generated by Guillermo. A flash flood watch has been issued until Thursday (Aug 6).

Heavy rainfall is possible for Hawaii Island and may be in the one to three inch range with maximum amounts near seven inches mainly in higher terrain.

The following beach parks in East Hawaii are closed due to high surf:

  • Onekahakaha Beach Park
  • Kealoha Beach Park
  • Leleiwi Beach Park
  • Richardsons Beach Park
