  • Hurricane Hector

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Debby formed far out over the north Atlantic, but it was expected to be a short-lived storm.

An updated forecast projects the center of the storm to move on a slightly more southerly course than previous tracks, and forecasters say the center of Hector is expected to pass less than 200 miles south of Hawaii Island on Wednesday.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.

As of 8 a.m., the center of Hurricane Hector was approximately 495 miles ESE of Hilo at latitude 16.3 N and longitude 148.5 W, moving west at approximately 16 miles per hour.

There have been three named Atlantic storms this year: Subtropical Storm Alberto formed in May, followed by hurricanes Beryl and Chris.

High rainfall from deep tropical moisture surrounding Hector is predicted to affect the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island as the hurricane passes by south of the state.

However, Hector could bring at least parts of the Big Island tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) today, particularly on the southern tip of the island and eastward-facing coasts. It was located about 470 miles east-southeast of South Point, Hawaii. It was forecast to peak as a Category 3 hurricane before starting to weaken while staying to the west of the Baja California Peninsula during the week.

The storm is not now a threat to any land.

This will keep Hector's eyewall with its strongest winds and heaviest rain well south of the Big Island. Debby is the fourth named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.
