HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An unusual out of season tropical storm has formed about 1400 miles south of Hawaii. TROPICAL STORM PALI has winds of 50mph, but it's not likely to threaten Hawaii or even come close. Forecast models show it lingering in the same vicinity for the next several days at the same strength.  However, sea surface temperatures are warm enough to support strengthening.

Light variable winds have taken over the state and are expected to persist well into the middle of next week. Rainfall so far has been very skimpy, although isolated afternoon showers are possible as long as the light winds stick around. Haze and vog buildups are  possible as well.

There are currently no marine alerts, but another advisory level swell is due in tomorrow with an even bigger boost expected over the weekend.
