An updated forecast projects the center of the storm to move on a slightly more southerly course than previous tracks, and forecasters say the center of Hector is expected to pass less than 200 miles south of Hawaii Island on Wednesday. As of 11 a.m., the storm had sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with a northerly movement at 16 miles per hour.
But only a small deviation to the north of the forecast track could also bring tropical storm force winds to the Big Island.
Swells from Hector will produce surf heights from 12 to 15 feet on east-facing shores mainly for the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
