Another day of heavy rain for the islands, and the tropical systems we’re tracking


All Hawaiian Islands remain under a flash flood watch through Tuesday afternoon.

Heavy rain will be moving through the islands due to the high amount of moisture that was pulled in by the passing of what was once Hurricane Lane.

Conditions should be improving by late Tuesday, with typical trade wind weather through the holiday weekend.

We continue to monitor Tropical Storm Miriam. Miriam is expected to intensify into a hurricane by Tuesday and cross into the Central Pacific on Wednesday. Shortly after Miriam is forecast to make a drastic turn to the north.

At the current path and intensity, Miriam is not a threat to the Hawaiian Islands but needs to be monitored. 

Two other areas of thunderstorms near Mexico could form into tropical systems.  Should both form they will be named Norman and Olivia.  These systems will be monitored during the next few weeks.

August and September are the busiest months of the hurricane season which runs from June through November.
