  • Olivia's track shows it coming close to the Big Island

The storm's sustained winds reached 75 mph (121 kph), just over the threshold for a hurricane, on Sunday morning as it was swirling across the Atlantic, about 750 miles (1,210 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles.

Helene, now classified as a tropical storm, is, according to the latest NHS advisory, expected to become a hurricane soon as well. According to aircraft data, its maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour.

It's moving westward at 12 mph about 595 miles east-northeast of Hilo and 760 miles east of Honolulu.

Little change is expected over the next 36 hours, although Olivia is forecast to begin gradually weakening Monday night. Large swells generated by Olivia are expected to continue to increase near the main Hawaiian Islands, and surf will to build as Olivia approaches, and may become damaging on some exposed east facing shores Tuesday or Wednesday.

Cabasag takes every hurricane warning seriously. Something we're really concerned about as Olivia gets close...

"Although it is too early to pinpoint any details with regard to specifics related to potential impacts to the islands, forecast confidence is increasing each day as the guidance remains in very good agreement", the National Weather Service in Honolulu said. The current forecast continues to hold Florence as a Category 4 storm as it nears the southeastern United States by Thursday. Since the track seems to be dependent on the intensity at long range, this isn't a particularly confident forecast. "We're not expecting Olivia to make that same sort of turn that we saw with Miriam or we saw with Norman, and be more of a threat to us".
