  • Hurricane Hector

Hurricane John was centered about 320 miles (515 kilometers) southwest of the Mexican port of Manzanillo, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph) late in the afternoon. The storm was traveling west at 17 miles per hour and had 130 miles per hour maximum sustained winds.

The hurricane, which is still a category four storm, is expected to pass approximately 265 km south of Hawaii's Big Island on Wednesday (local time).

The storm is centered about 1,160 miles west of the Azores and is moving north near 16 mph.

The Tropical Meteorology Team at Colorado State University recently adjusted its forecast for the 2018 season, predicting a below-average number of storms.

The risk of a hurricane striking the United States during the remainder of the summer is lower than average, experts said in an updated seasonal forecast released Thursday.

Hurricane Hector remains a smaller but very powerful and intense Cat 4 major hurricane with sustained winds of 115kts. Warm ocean temperatures and strong wind shear are contributing to the lack of activity.

"The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project team is predicting a total of nine additional named storms to form after August 1", the university said in a news release.

One of two storms off Mexico's Pacific coast strengthened into a hurricane Monday afternoon, while forecasters said the other was no longer expected to gain hurricane strength and neither posed an immediate threat to land.
