Tropical Storm Nora is continuing to close in on Hawaii, but forecasters expect the system to make a sudden turn later this week that will steer it away from the the Hawaiian islands. (more)





As of 5 a.m. HST on Tuesday, Nora was located about 575 miles (920 kilometers) southeast of Hilo. Its maximum sustained winds are near 45 miles (75 kilometers) per hour, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu.

Nora is expected to start weakening over the next 24 hours and will likely become a tropical depression on Wednesday, after which it will start to make a westward turn on Thursday, taking it away from the Hawaiian islands.

There is only a very small chance that Nora will directly affect the Hawaiian islands, forecasters say.
