Tropical Storm Nora has begun to weaken as it moves southeast of the Hawaiian islands, forecasters said on late Tuesday. (more)





The Central Pacific Hurricane Center said in its 11 p.m. HST advisory that maximum sustained winds of Nora had weakened to 45 miles (75 kilometers) per hour. Slow weakening is expected to continue over the next few days and Nora could weaken to a tropical depression within the next few hours.

As of 11 p.m. HST on Tuesday, Nora was located about 595 miles (960 kilometers) southeast of Hilo, and is moving to the west-northwest at 10 miles (17 kilometers) per hour. While the storm is currently approaching Hawaii, forecasters expect Nora to start making a sudden turn to the southwest on Thursday afternoon, which should steer it clear of the Hawaiian islands.

The models from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center show only a very low risk of a direct impact to Hawaii.
