Category 4 Hurricane Hector Nears Hilo Hawaii – The Central Pacific Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Hector, located about 900 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.
The latest model guidance remains tightly clustered and brings Hector just north of due west over the next 36 to 48 hours due to a weakness in the subtropical ridge to the northeast of the Hawaiian Islands.
Beyond 48 hours, the subtropical ridge is forecast to build to the north of the Hawaiian Island chain, and this should steer Hector due westward from 48 to 96 hours, before bending back to the west-northwest beyond 96 hours as a digging upper level trough between 170W and the International Date Line begins to erode the western portion of the subtropical ridge.
