HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A very humid, potentially very wet Tuesday on tap as the remnants of Celia sit about 200 miles northwest of Honolulu.

The ex-tropical cyclone is sending us bands of showers and pulling up some very moist air from the tropics. Like yesterday, afternoon convective heating could trigger localized moderate to heavy showers.

The high in Honolulu is expected to be 88 degrees, but feel much warmer.

The "feels like" was 80 degrees at 5:00 a.m. this morning. Cooling, breezy trade winds are forecast to return tomorrow and stay with us for the rest of the work week.

Surf is dropping along east shores but continues to be dangerous. The National Weather Service surf forecast: 4-7 feet east, 2-4 feet north and south, 1-3 feet west.

Gale Warning posted for all offshore waters, 40-240 nautical miles off our coasts.
