I guess the million dollar question is does that heavy band of rain SW of Lahaina make it to Oahu?

No. 

Not one band of rain associated with Lane has made it up here without falling apart.

I don’t know, that band looks pretty solid now. And some persistent heavy showers are finally building on the Windward side of the island.

What kinda winds are you seeing there? We just gusted up to 40MPH.

Rain we are getting currently still associated with wet trades.

We’ve had some stronger gusts, close to 50. The stronger gusts seem to accompany the rain, so I’m sure if some actual convection can build in we will finally see tropical storm conditions. That bright band offshore is full of 50-60mph sustained wind with some gusts over 70 still embedded.

Lane finally showing a pulse the last hour or so as IR indicates some new convection firing to the NE of the LLC as we approach the dirunial maximum. You can see this on radar as a fairly healthy looking band of rain has formed just to the South of Maui and Oahu, generally moving Northward.

I know more than you think, however when your family is directly in the path of a hurricane you tend to look at things differently than you would from thousands of miles away.

And secondly, @wxtrix called and wants her grammar police shield back.

@metalicwx366 I can smell the rain and visually see a shower passing by to the South now. Even a few sprinkles here. I think a sign of things shifting a bit to a more Southerly flow.

Who’s being dramatic? Yesterday Lane was a category 4 hurricane that was holding its own, obviously the shear was too much to overcome even with how well organized the circulation was. The models were also all over the place, both in terms of track and intensity until this morning. We had reason to be concerned. And the rain and fresh water flash flood potential still remains.

It really is not a good thing wind is what most take so seriously... flooding doesn't get the attention but is far more widespread and destructive.

The Windward side of the big island is experiencing catastrophic flooding and the forecast here is for lots more rain regardless as to whether or not Lane becomes a remnant low.

Wind has picked up here and the dew point has shot up from 66 to 70 over the last hour. Sustained winds are out of the East at 30mph with gusts to 50.

Yep, radar starting to fill in slowly. 

0Z GFS and HRRR still showing the potential of some significant rainfall with a heavy band of rain that sets up over the area tomorrow. Sort of reminds me of Darby from 2016 when we got significant flash flooding after the system passed when flow turned southerly.

Harvey should've taught that lesson, bad wind damage in tiny locale, known for flooding and destruction of wide area from fresh water flooding. Allison is perfect example.
