Fausto on track to bring rain to Hawaii

What's left of Tropical Storm Fausto is on a path toward Hawaii and may bring some rain to the islands next week, forecasters said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said that Fausto formed about 1,145 miles southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula on Monday. The center said Fausto is moving west at about 15 mph and has maximum sustained winds of about 45 mph with higher gusts.

But by Tuesday evening, Fausto had fallen apart and is no longer a tropical storm or even a tropical depression.

The remnants of Fausto are still more than 2,000 miles east-southeast of Hawaii, but are expected to bring enhanced trade wind showers next week.

Forecasters said because the storm is more than a week away, it's hard to accurately predict the effect it will have on the state's weather.

"Fausto is a tap on the shoulder to remind us that we will soon be entering primetime hurricane season and we encourage everyone to be prepared," National Weather Service forecasters in Honolulu said.
