Severe T-Storm Warning In....Hawaii???

Above is a radar image just taken from the Molokai, Hawaii radar site. You can see a severe thunderstorm on the Northeast end of the island of Oahu.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was recently issued on this storm, as noted by the red polygon.  The actual warning text is below:

Severe thunderstorms aren't unheard of in Hawaii, but it is a rather unusual time of the day for a severe storm over there (5am local time).  The radar has a strong hail signature associated with this storm, perhaps on the order of golfball size or larger!

Updated 3/9/12 at 8:55pm CST:  See this post for additional details on the aftermath of the above storm...
