Tropical Storm Nora has continued on its northwest track as it lies south of Hawai’i Tuesday morning.

As of 5 a.m., the Central Pacific Hurricane Center reports that the storm was located about 575 miles southeast of Hilo. The storm was circulating wind speeds of 45 miles per hour as it moved in a northwest direction at 7 mph.

CPHC forecasters expect that Tropical Storm Nora will slowly weaken over the next couple of days, downgrading to tropical depression status by Wednesday. Forward speed is also expected to gradually decrease as the storm keeps on its current path over the next couple of days.
