Tropical Storm Nora is located over 1,470 miles east-southeast of South Point, Hawaii. Maximum sustained winds are now about 40 mph.
This system will continue to strengthen over the next few days as it moves generally westward. It may reach hurricane strength later in the weekend. The storm will likely curve northward early next week before it gets close to Hawaii, so it will have no direct impact on land through at least the first part of next week.
Oho is a non-tropical cyclone and is moving northward. It will continue to weaken through the weekend. Oho will bring gusty winds and heavy rainfall to portions of western and northern British Columbia as well as southeastern Alaska today through tonight.
