HONOLULU -

Forecasters at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said late Saturday that Tropical Storm Henriette is passing far south of the Big Island.

In its 11 p.m. Saturday advisory, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said Tropical Storm Henriette was located about 430 miles south of Hilo and about 595 miles south-southeast of Honolulu, moving west near 21 miles per hour. Forecasters said this motion is expected to continue the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are down near 40 mph with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours and Henriette is forecast to weaken to a depression Sunday, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

"Henriette is now forecast to have no impact on our weather, other than a moderate small-to-moderate swell for the Big Island's east and southeast shores," said KITV4 chief meteorologist Justin Fujioka.
