The Central Pacific Hurricane Center reports that at 11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018, the center of Hurricane Lane was located near latitude 12.9 North, longitude 142.3 West.

Central Pacific basin on August 18. Lane is moving west-northwest at about 15 miles per hour, and it is expected to lose power as it continues west-northwest over the next few days.

Six computer forecast models predict Lane's center will pass south of Hawaii next week, but the outer bands still could bring strong winds to the islands if the center gets close enough.

The system is now a strong Category 2 Hurricane, carrying maximum sustained winds of 110 mph, with hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles and tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 105 miles from the center.

The latest NHC advisory warns that strengthening is expected over the weekend.

The NHC intensity forecast suggests Lane's winds could increase to 125mph on Saturday.

Hurricane-force winds extend up to 25 miles from the center, with tropical-storm-force winds reaching out 105 miles.

After the weekend, Lane is predicted to still be a major hurricane with sustained winds of 115mph. The storm is predicted to rapidly intensify over the coming days, due to its tight inner core and warm water below.

Forecasters said Friday morning it is too soon to know if Lane will directly affect the Hawaiian Islands.
