Hurricane Hector returns to Category 4 as it nears Hawaii

Hurricane Hector returns to Category 4 as it nears Hawaii”

"While it is too soon to determine the location and magnitude of the worst impacts, all interests in Hawaii should continue to monitor the progress of Olivia, and use this time to prepare for the increasing likelihood of direct impacts from this system early next week", the center warned.

"A low, long period east swell generated by distant Hurricane Olivia will begin to fill in behind the fading Norman swell on Sunday", the National Weather Service added.

As of 11 a.m., the storm was located 330 miles north-northeast of Hilo and 375 miles east-northeast of Honolulu.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center downgraded Norman to a tropical storm Friday as the system moved away from Hawaii.

From the 5 a.m. The eyewall convection has warmed during the past several hours, with some breaks noted in the northwestern quadrant. "Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", the advisory says.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell this morning urged residents and visitors to remain vigilant about the threat of Hurricane Olivia and asked people not to hoard supplies.

Olivia was expected to cross into the Central Pacific late today and approach the Hawaiian Islands in three to four days. The system is projected to take a slight west-southwest turn Monday night into Tuesday.

"In other words, the major hurricane track, currently, is basically confined to the south of the Hawaiian Islands". Since the track seems to be dependent on the intensity at long range, this isn't a particularly confident forecast.

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac.
