Darby downgraded to a remnant low passing south of the islands
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Once a powerful major hurricane in the eastern North Pacific, Darby has been downgraded to a remnant low by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.
Forecasters said at 5 p.m. Saturday, what’s left of Darby was located about 175 miles south of Maui and was continuing to track toward the west.
The former tropical cyclone will have little impact on island weather, other than some elevated surf for east-facing shores of Hawaii Island.
A drier airmass is moving in behind Darby’s remnants, resulting in drier-than-normal conditions for Sunday, along with breezy trade winds.
