Report: Tropical System May Impact Hawaii From Thursday Into Saturday

hawaiiAccuWeather reports a budding tropical system may pass close enough to Hawaii to bring an uptick in gusty showers and thunderstorms, as well as building seas late in the week.

How significant these impacts become will depend on the track, strength and size of the system.

While there are several areas in the Eastern and Central Pacific that bear watching this week, one system in particular southeast of Hawaii is of the greatest concern. As of Tuesday morning, the most organized system is located about 1,300 miles east-southeast of the Big Island of Hawaii and is being monitored for development as the week progresses. This system is currently drifting toward the west-northwest, according to the report.

According to Dan Kottlowski, AccuWeather hurricane expert, the system is likely to become a tropical depression by Tuesday evening Hawaii Standard Time (HST).

"The system could rapidly become a hurricane prior to reaching Hawaiian waters later this week," Kottlowski said in the report.
