In the Pacific Ocean, Tropical Storm Flossie is impacting the Hawaiian islands. Flossie is a minimal system but will produce heavy rain and squalls throughout the entire island chain. Tropical Storm Warnings are posted there. http://www.prh.noaa.gov/hnl/
Tropical storms are not unusual in that part of the Pacific. In the last 3 decades, the Hawaiian island have had named storms brush by every few years, with only two of them being hurricanes.
In the Atlantic Ocean, The remnants of Dorian are north of Puerto Rico, heading toward the southern Bahamas. While the remnants are still a mass of clouds, producing rain over the open water, the Hurricane Hunters flew in earlier this afternoon to investigate and did not find a closed circulation. There is a small possibility that the remnants can regain enough strength to become a depression or tropical storm again as they move through the Bahamas. In that case, it still remains very unlikely to impact the weather of the northern Gulf of Mexico.
