Hawaii's Big Island readies as Hurricane Hector approaches

Hurricane Hector is expected to pass approximately 165 miles south of the Big Island on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018. However, tropical-storm-force winds and pounding, unsafe surf are possible late Tuesday and Wednesday.

A high surf warning has been issued for east-facing shores of Hawaii Island for 12-13 foot waves.

Weather experts posting on various sites said that as Debby passes over progressively cooler waters, a non-tropical system is likely to absorb and shred the storm, which will lead to its demise. It was located about 470 miles east-southeast of South Point, Hawaii.

John was expected to strengthen rapidly and become a major hurricane by late Tuesday.

"It is expected to dissipate over the next 48 hours, but the remains of the storm will track towards Ireland Saturday and could potentially bring some much needed rain". "Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 160 miles [260 km] to the northeast of the center". It will not affect any land areas.

So far this season we have had Subtropical Storm Alberto, which formed in May, as well as Hurricane Beryl and Hurricane Chris.

"A non-tropical feature may dip southward enough to tug Hector farther north next week", AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski explained.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will release its updated mid-season hurricane forecast on Thursday. Depending on its ultimate track, the storm could bring thunderstorms, gusty winds and increased surf to parts of the island and could also cause risky rip currents off the east- and south-facing beaches.
