Mike Charnick, a meteorologist for the Weather Service, said a weather system from the southwest, similar to a monsoon pattern, is going to put more moisture in the air, increasing the chance for precipitation.

A hurricane warning has been issued for Hawaiʻi and Maui Counties as Hurricane Lane continues to move towards the state as a powerful Category 4 storm.

"The center of Lane will track dangerously close to the islands Thursday through Saturday", the center said in an advisory.

Residents "rushed to stores to stock up on bottled water, ramen, toilet paper and other supplies" as the storm neared, The Associated Press reports. The current forecast track has the storm making a turn to the northwest sometime Wednesday into Thursday, with the center expected to pass close to the islands of Hawaii and Maui starting on Thursday.

The Supreme Court put the brakes on it in 2016 after energy-producing states sued the EPA, saying it had exceeded its legal reach. Many of these rules include protections to wildlife habitats and restrictions aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Governor David Ige signed an emergency proclamation ahead of Lane's onset, as "the danger of disaster is of such magnitude to warrant pre-emptive and protective action".

Life-threatening weather conditions can extend well away from the center of the hurricane and interests throughout Hawaii are urged to closely monitor the progress of Lane over the next few days. "I've not seen such dramatic changes in the forecast track as I've seen with this storm".

"Please take this threat seriously and hopefully when this is over you can say, 'ha, we did all that for nothing, '" Kim said.

Officials with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center have issued Hurricane warnings for the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe and the Big Island.

Residents are stocking up on essentials are they prepare for Lane to reach Hawaii.

Federal advisory warns Canadians to 'avoid non-essential' travel to Hawaii
NASA satellite imagery shows the hurricane is now in the Central Pacific Ocean southeast of the islands. In this case, the watch means that at least tropical storm-force winds are expected within 48 hours.

Hawaiians scrambled to prepare for the storm's arrival.

There are only two hurricanes on record that have made landfall in Hawaii, and both were on Kauai: Category 1 Dot hit in 1959 and catastrophic Category 4 Iniki came ashore in 1992.

While there is still considerable uncertainty in the forecast for Lane, it appears the storm will be passing close enough to the islands on Thursday and Friday to bring significant impacts to the southern portions of the islands, especially along the coastline. Impacts on Kauai County and Oahu are also possible, and a Hurricane Watch is in effect there. 'A lot of people are comparing the similarities between Iniki and Lane, ' he said.

'I remember how very little rain fell.

A hurricane watch means hurricane-force winds are possible within the area in the next 48 hours.
