00:03 I'm meteorologist Bobby -- with USA today when he gets
00:06 updated on Isabel first thing this morning is weakening. But it
00:09 is slowing down and it is making landfall right now the
00:13 satellite looks a lot worse meaning the storm is getting weaker
00:16 but you can still see great rotation here. On the radar
00:19 and some of the heaviest rains and winds are now moving
00:22 onshore. Into Hawaii it's going to be especially the south beside
00:26 the big island that deals with that I think the actual.
00:30 Landfall will be right towards power Holland down here just north
00:34 of the radar senate there's the center. Right in there that's
00:37 the senator landfall be somewhere right along in this area here.
00:41 The heaviest rains though and you see this green line here.
00:43 This green line is a -- gun that outlines basically the
00:46 northern and northeastern side of the big island that is a
00:49 flash flood warning in effect. These heavy bands of rain and
00:53 wind are coming on shore they're gonna go right up the
00:55 side of that volcano it's gonna squeeze out more rain. That's
00:59 -- gonna have the worst problems with -- is going to
01:01 be right along the volcano off to the north and the
01:04 east including up towards kilos so that's gonna debate issue should
01:07 be making landfall. -- feed mill tonight early morning it's about
01:11 2 AM they're now going to be close to the sunrise.
01:14 3 or 4 o'clock actually. And then by sunrise and lost
01:17 all should be on shortly is the senator. Now there are
01:19 hurricane warnings of course. For the big island tropical storm warnings
01:23 once you move out to the west of there. But there's
01:26 that green shaded aero area again that is the main area
01:29 of flooding concern although mostly to be heavy rainfall over the
01:31 south. Now here this particulars on the storm is Zell now
01:35 has sixty mile per hour winds which is great is because
01:38 it's weakening. But it's moving to the west northwest at about
01:41 nine miles per hour slowing down that means that rain spinning
01:44 around center is going to have more time to fall over
01:47 that area. Now within about six hours or so it's going
01:50 to be pushing. Offshore the big -- so this is 8
01:53 o'clock in the morning local time that the senators already offshore.
01:58 The heaviest rain and wind will soon be over to the
02:00 north of that so things will improve during the daylight hours
02:03 for the big island today right now. Talking about the 12
02:06 punch now -- shoot this -- -- 120 mile per hour
02:10 winds gusting to 150. It's moving to the west northwest --
02:13 the latest track from the hurricane -- suggesting. More attractive than
02:17 north it will be weakening dry air and shared the same
02:20 thing that took its effect on Zell will likely have an
02:23 effect on Julio. But right now looks like most of it
02:26 will be just to the north so we're hoping that this
02:28 holds true. And we get more of a glancing blow out
02:31 typically go to -- Morgan high winds and rain on the
02:33 north and east side of the senator which would put more
02:36 of it. Further away from the islands stay tuned to USA
02:39 today is we'll keep you updated and Stacy.
