AccuWeather meteorologists expect Iselle to continue to weaken over the next couple of days and become a tropical storm before reaching the islands. Iselle will be moving into a wedge of cool water and dry air just east of the Hawaiian Islands.
However, even as a tropical storm, Iselle will still pack a punch. Heavy rain, gusty winds and building seas and surf will affect the islands during the second half of the week.
There is the potential for significant flash flooding, mudslides and damaging wind gusts. Ground access to some communities could be cut off.
