HONOLULU (AP) - Tropical Storm Guillermo is maintaining its course to the north of the Hawaiian Islands and is expected to continue to weaken in the coming days.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu say the storm will pass to the north of the state Wednesday and Thursday.

There are flash flood watches in effect for Hawaii’s Big Island and for the island of Maui, where the most significant rains are expected. Tropical storm watches and high surf advisories are also in place for some locations.

Given the northerly track of the storm, forecasters say the state will likely see top winds around 30 mph when the storm passes. The biggest dangers are high surf and heavy rain that could lead to flooding.
