Subtropical Storm Debby develops in the Atlantic

Hurricane Hector

Hurricane Hector

The County of Hawai'i is under a Tropical Storm Watch.

Hurricane Hector, while at Category 3 intensity will pass south of Hawaii today into early Thursday, with only some periphery effects expected in the islands.

Swells generated by Hector are expected to reach the southeast and east shores of the Big Island and eastern Maui later Wednesday, and produce large and unsafe surfs. The hurricane center said in its 5 p.m. update the "far northern fringes of the hurricane will brush the Big Island on Wednesday".

As a precaution, Hawaii County officials closed three beaches on the Big Island, according to Hawaii News Now.

The storm will continue moving west after it passes by Hawaii.

It opened its mouth right at my feet... "Ho! Holy crap", Skomal yells, as the shark falls away. Beachgoers are being urged to exercise caution due to at least one shark lurking in the area.

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.

"The storm is moving toward the north near 16 mph [26 km/h], and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected during the next 24 hours".

The tropical Atlantic remains cooler than normal and there is a relatively high potential that a weak El Niño develops in the next several months. All these conditions tend to be associated with quieter Atlantic hurricane season. It poses no threat to land.

Tropical storm Debby strengthened a little overnight in the Atlantic, but forecasters say her time as the fourth named storm of the 2018 hurricane season may be nearing its end.
