HONOLULU (AP) — Tropical Depression Ivette is expected to dissipate to the south of the Hawaiian Islands over the next day or so.

But forecasters say remnants of the storm are expected to bring rain and wind to the Big Island and possibly Maui on Wednesday and Thursday.

Central Pacific Hurricane Center forecaster Tom Birchard said Monday moisture from Ivette is expected to ride in with the trade winds.

Over the weekend, remnants of Tropical Storm Howard traveled north of the islands, cutting off the trade winds and giving the islands high humidity.

Strong thunderstorms passed north of Oahu, delivering about 3 to 5 inches of rain to Oahu and Kauai, mostly in mountainous areas.
