Great work everyone! The trajectory has moved the storm to the Southwest, at this point only the tip of the outer bands are projected to bring high winds, heavy tides and storms to the islands. BUT, until the storm passes to the Southwest of the island we’re still under threat from ANA’s trajectory moving northward into Kauai and Oahu (details in the news report and video link below). Please continue holding space for the storm to travel safely to the southwest of the island chain and out to sea, without change of trajectory ~ maintain a southwesterly direction. Please help maintain a fortified wall of energetic protection that keeps pushing the storm southward.
Here’s some helpful guidance I’ve picked up over the last 24hrs:
Connect with the crystalline grid to move from your location over the islands, or into the storm.
In addition to working with elemental conditions surrounding the storm, connect with ANA, into her eye sending love and calming energy to the core of the storm and then spin that energy off into the bands.
Disengage any focused “interference” from weather manipulating technology’s and/or malevolent intentions aimed at causing injury or property damage.
Use your focused intention backed energetically, to move the trajectory southward until after she SAFELY passes Southwest of the islands.
Set the intention for this storm to break up before approaching other island archipelago’s in the Pacific.
Namaste and mahalo to all the beautiful souls on this journey into unity consciousness…we’re ALL working as One with the Creator, Gaia, Pele and the Elements to keep Hawaii protected from further harm. I’m humbled to be in your company. With infinite love and heartfelt gratitude, Annette
Hurricane Ana has maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.
Conditions remain favorable for additional strengthening over the next day or so, as it moves toward the west-northwest over very warm water and wind shear is decreasing.
A tropical storm watch has been issued for the Big Island of Hawaii as Tropical Storm Ana continues to spin in the central Pacific Ocean about 250 miles south of Hilo, or 420 miles south-southeast of Honolulu.

A U.S. Air Force Reconnaissance Aircraft will be investigating Ana again on Friday afternoon to provide additional data on the structure of the tropical storm.
Ana is expected to begin a turn toward the northwest by late Friday, thanks to the combination of upper-level low pressure backing west of the Hawaiian Islands and high pressure aloft northeast of the islands. This track will take the center of Ana about 125 miles southwest of the Big Island Friday night (local time).
A turn toward the west is then expected late Saturday and Sunday, as a new ridge of high pressure is expected to build to the north. The timing of this westward turn is critical for potential impacts to the island chain, including Maui and Oahu this weekend.
Hawaii is preparing ahead of Ana and Gov. Neil Abercrombie declared a state of emergency, which will allow the state to access state and federal resources.

It is worth mentioning wind shear may increase as Ana tracks near/through parts of Hawaii this weekend. Furthermore, as the Central Pacific Hurricane Center stresses, Ana’s low-level circulation may be disrupted by the islands themselves, as we saw with Tropical Storm Iselle in early August.
The forecast path graphic above gives the latest thinking from the CPHC on track of Ana’s center and intensity. Keep in mind tropical cyclones are not a point, but have impacts that extend some distance beyond the center of circulation. In this case, tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from Ana’s center of circulation.
Based on that forecast, the Big Island may see bands of heavy rain and stronger winds as soon as Friday afternoon local time. Heavy rain could cause flash flooding and mudslides.
A flash flood watch will be in effect for the Big Island from noon Friday through Sunday evening (local time), as total rain accumulations of six to twelve inches are possible.
Larger swells should build in the eastern Hawaiian Islands through Friday morning, and then spread through the island chain this weekend. Surf produced by these swells may be damaging, especially along exposed south and southeast shorelines starting on Friday night.
Ana may then pass near the rest of the islands this weekend, but it’s far from certain whether the center will pass close enough to produce significant impacts. A track toward the southern edge of the forecast path may produce very little significant high wind impact. All those critical details are yet to be determined.
(FORECASTS: Hilo | Maui | Honolulu)
Since 1950, only four hurricanes have tracked within 150 nautical miles of Honolulu. Hurricane Iniki (1992) and Hurricane Dot (1959) both made landfall on Kauai. Dot’s center passed about 80 miles west-southwest of Honolulu as a Category 3 hurricane on August 6, 1959.

Hawaii has already taken a hit from a landfalling tropical cyclone this season. Tropical Storm Iselle made landfall on the Big Island on Aug. 8, causing extensive damage and power outages.
Interests in the entire Hawaiian Island chain should continue to monitor the progress of Ana closely. Stay with The Weather Channel and weather.com for updates on this system.
