See tc sigmet series tango for tropical cyclone Ignacio.

The passing of Ignacio a few hundred miles north of the state will greatly influence the wind. West of the main storm circulation, expect moderate N to NE winds. Winds south of the storm will back more westerly, and eventually turn more southerly and weaken as the center of Ignacio moves west.

Shower activity will continue to favor northeast facing slopes and coasts of the smaller islands. On the Big Island, .partial clearing tonight will give way on Tuesday to afternoon and early evening showers over interior and leewards areas. Isolated MVFR conditions are to be expected in showers otherwise VFR conditions should prevail through Tuesday.

The airmass over the state remains moist and unstable. Isolated thunderstorms with heavy downpours are possible over the NE half of the coastal waters and land areas tonight. Slight chance of thunderstorms over interior Big Island Tuesday afternoon.
