Hurricane Henriette continues moving through the Eastern Pacific Ocean as Category 1 hurricane.

According to latest public advisory issued by US National Hurricane Center (NHC), the center of Hurricane Henriette was located about 1285 miles (2065 km) E of Hilo, Hawaii. Henriette is moving toward the west-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). The estimated minimum central pressure is 983 mb (29.03 inches).

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km).

A turn toward the west and then the west-southwest is expected during the next couple of days. Henriette is moving into an area of colder sea surface temperatures and less favorable upper-level winds and weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

After 48 hours, the system is expected to move over warmer sea surface temperatures and decreased shear.
