The HIRSC Weather team is monitoring Tropical Cyclone Nobert, currently, a Tropical Storm with maximum sustained winds of 40 MPH and remains fairly stationary and located approximately 3,195 miles East-Southeast of Hilo, Hawaii Island. Tropical Cyclone Marie maintains its current status as a tropical storm over the next few days and will remain a good distance away from the Island and the State of Hawai'i. No major weather effects are also expected.
The weather team is also monitoring an area of interest off the western coast of Mexico in the East Pacific, which has a 60% chance of becoming an organized tropical cyclone in the next 5 days. Will continue to monitor this area of interest and provide updates, should it become an organized system.
Tropical Cyclone Marie is now a remnant low and the remnant moisture associated with Marie will get caught in the trade wind flow and expected to increase windward and mauka showers with the possibility of heavy showers and thunderstorms over the island of Hawai'i sometime on next late weekend into early next week based on the latest forecast.
The Island of Hawaii will continue to see a stable trade wind pattern through the rest of the week and bringing with it the possibility for windward and mauka showers, mainly during the evenings into the early morning hours. The Kona Coast will continue to see clear mornings and some afternoon clouds and the possibility of showers along the western slopes of Hualalai and Mauna Loa (South Kona region) through the rest of the week.
The HIRSC Weather Team will continue to monitor the progress of Tropical Cyclone Norbert and the area of interest in the East Pacific Ocean and provide updates on the latest track released.
