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!
