Hurricane Norman on course to pass Hawaii to northeast

The eye of the storm was located about 330 miles north-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii, and 375 miles east-northeast of Honolulu, the CPHC said in its 11 a.m. HST update.

Olivia is moving to the west-northwest at about 15 miles per hour and this motion is expected to continue through Saturday.

The National Weather Service said Thursday that Hurricane Norman's center will likely pass 200 to 300 miles (320 to 480 kilometers) to the northeast of the main Hawaiian Islands.

Hurricane Wind Scale. Steady weakening is expected during the next few days. The Category 3 system still had 115 miles per hour maximum sustained winds and was moving on a path toward the WNW near 8 miles per hour at last report.

However, a gradual turn toward the west is expected Saturday night or Sunday that could put the Big Island in harm's way. The hurricane's strong winds fueled wildfires on Maui.

Impacts of Norman are expected to show up in the form of large swells, which will build across the islands today.
