Daniel will make Friday a little wetter and windier

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Daniel continues to weaken as it approaches the islands from the southeast. Now a remnant low, Daniel will pass a few hundred miles south of the Big Island sometime in the next 24 hours impacting the islands in three ways.

The energy being pushed out in front of Daniel is already creating bigger surf along east-facing shores. While all islands are seeing the bump, the Big Island is getting the biggest waves. A High Surf Advisory has been posted for Hawaii Island's eastern shores.

As Daniel passes to the south, it will work in concert with a surface High to the northeast of us.. tightening the pressure gradient and increasing our tradewinds to 15-25mph with some higher gusts.

An increase in showers is also expected. Moisture from Daniel is working its way into the tradewind flow and will moisten primarily windward and mauka areas overnight and tomorrow. All islands will be wetter, but again it is the Big Island capturing the biggest portion. At last check the National Weather Service in Honolulu was anticipating 1-3 inches there.

Emilia is now a Category 1 hurricane. The storm is still more than 2175 miles east of Hilo and expected to weaken and take a track much like Daniel. We could see a similar increase in showers and tradewinds with Emilia late next week.

The newest name in the Pacific is Fabio. The Tropical Storm is about 3200 miles east of us and will likely be a hurricane within the next 24 hours. Fabio is not expected to have any impact on us or the mainland coast.
