Remnants of two former hurricanes are expected to bring muggy conditions and possible heavy showers to the islands through early next week.

Meanwhile the third hurricane of the East Pacific season, Darby, maintained its sustained winds of 80 mph far to the east of Hawaii.

What’s left of former Hurricane Blas, a mass of moisture and low clouds, is expected to move over or near the islands tonight through Friday.

Forecasters expect humidity to increase, lighter tradewinds and an increase in showers as the system moves from east to west over the islands.

Stronger trades should return Saturday, but starting on Sunday, remnants of what is now Tropical Storm Celia are expected to move near or over the islands, bringing a return of the muggy weather, light winds and increased rain.

Some of the showers could be locally heavy.

The forecast for Honolulu and south shores of Oahu calls for a 50 percent chance of rain tonight through Saturday and Monday into Tuesday. But forecasters say the timing and path of the remnants of Blas and Celia could change.

Meanwhile out in the East Pacific, Hurricane Darby strengthened, with sustained winds of 90 mph as it moves west at 12 mph, as of 11 p.m. The storm was about 805 miles southwest of Baja California.

Darby could send some surf to east shores of the Hawaiian islands next week. But it’s too early to say how or if it will affect the weather here.

Meanwhile, Celia maintained its status as a tropical storm but is expected to weaken as it moves over cooler waters. At 11 p.m., Celia’s winds remained at 45 mph as the storm moved west-northwest at 13 mph. Celia was about 975 miles east-northeast of Hilo.

Celia should cross into the Central Pacific tonight.
