DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM HST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Olivia was located
near latitude 21.8 North, longitude 143.9 West. Olivia is moving
toward the west near 16 mph (26 km/h). Olivia is expected to
continue moving westward, but at a slightly slower forward speed
through early Monday. A gradual turn toward the west-southwest is
expected starting late Monday. This track could bring the outer
circulation of Olivia close to the Hawaiian Islands starting 
Tuesday night. 
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next couple
of days, and Olivia is expected to remain a hurricane through
Monday night. Some gradual weakening is possible on Tuesday, but
Olivia will likely remain a threat to the Hawaiian Islands early
this week.
 
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 120 miles
(195 km).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 989 mb (29.21 inches).
