Fernanda weakens further as it marches toward Central Pacific

Fernanda weakened to a tropical depression on Friday, but Hawaii could still see some impacts from the storm. It was tracking toward the northwest at 8 miles per hour.

The storm is pushing up surf for some of the Hawaiian islands.

The storm is moving west-northwest near 9 miles per hour and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, an east swell generated by Fernanda is expected to build throughout the week.

Civil Defense will continue to monitor this system.

At 11 a.m. today, the Category 1 storm was located about 1,235 miles east of Hilo moving west-northwest at 8 mph, according to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Additional strengthening is forecast over the next couple of days as the storm moves over warmer waters and encounters increased moisture in the atmosphere. Forecasters say that Greg will likely become the dominant cyclone. A slow motion toward the southwest or south-southwest is expected during the next couple of days.
