Daniel, after reaching major hurricane status over the weekend, has now weakened to a tropical depression over the open waters of the Eastern Pacific. Some of its moisture could bring unsettled weather to Hawaii by the end of the week.
Daniel strengthened into a major hurricane early Sunday morning.
For the latest stats on Daniel, visit the AccuWeather Hurricane Center.
Thankfully, this storm won't have any impacts on the Mexican coastline as it moves westward well away from land.
The focus then shifts to Hawaii, which could experience some impacts late this week and this weekend, as the remnants of Daniel pass south of the state.
While Daniel continues to track farther west over the open waters of the Pacific, it will continue to encounter gradually cooler waters and more high winds aloft.
Daniel will reach a point approximately 250 miles south of the Big Island of Hawaii by late Friday or Friday night. At that point, the system will likely be a remnant area of low pressure.
However, locally gusty winds and enhanced trade-wind showers will occur Thursday night and through the weekend.
In fact, trade-wind showers could even reach areas to the lee of the higher elevations where precipitation is much more sparse this time of year.
Showers, particularly across the Big Island, could become heavy at times and cause localized flash flooding.
Along with the increase in shower activity, trade winds will cause higher waves, especially across southern and eastern-facing beaches.
Stay tuned to AccuWeather.com as we continue to monitor the progress of Daniel and what affects it might have on Hawaii.
