This is going to be a very close shave for Hawaii though this will be at tropical storm strength by the time it gets there.

Meanwhile low pressure has developed in the Northeast Gulf of Mexico off the NW Florida coast. That will heading northeastward to off the SE US coast. It will be something to monitor over the next few days but no imminent development is indicated at this point.
