Hurricane Julio was located well north of the islands near 30.0N
158.4W at 09 UTC and is still packing quite a punch as it tracks
away from the state. Trailing moisture will exit the western
islands today and disrupted trades will rebound to moderate levels
over the next few days as high pressure settles to the north and
northeast of the islands in the wake of Julio. This favors a
pattern of limited windward showers through the weekend.
Meanwhile, guidance remains varied but satellite imagery indicated
that the ITCZ remains active upstream of Hawaii with the National
Hurricane Center and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center
monitoring two tropical disturbances whose associated moisture may
effect the islands by early next week with approach.
