Report: Tropical System May Impact Hawaii Late This Week

hawaiiAccuWeather is reporting that 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 and strength of the system, which is projected to move along at a swift pace of 17 to 23 miles per hour, according to the report. 

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 Monday morning, the strongest system is located about 1,700 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 Hawaii, according to the report.
