Hurricane John absorbs tropical storm off Mexico

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Debby formed far out over the north Atlantic, but it was expected to be a short-lived storm. The fourth storm of the season formed around 11am today about 1,000 miles west of the Azores, but it poses little threat to anything but fish.

According to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the center of the storm was located about 470 miles east-southeast of Hilo, or about 665 miles east-southeast of Honolulu.

Any deviation northward could bring Hector close enough to impact the Big Island. Swells generated by Hector are expected to reach southeast and east facing shores of the Big Island and eastern Maui late today, likely becoming large and unsafe by late tonight and Wednesday. A high surf advisory has been issued for east-facing shores of Maui for 6-10 foot surf. Combined with high tides, this could lead to some overwash of low-lying coastal areas and perhaps some beach erosion. However, tropical-storm-force winds and pounding, risky surf are possible late Tuesday and Wednesday. The National Hurricane Center said it was likely to peak as a Category 3 hurricane before starting to weaken and turn out to sea as it passes west of the Baja California Peninsula late in the week. All these conditions tend to be associated with quieter Atlantic hurricane season. Forecasters note that hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles. A trough is then forecast to take Debby on a northeasterly track afterward, but fall apart afterward.

Remember that the forecast track and intensity can and will change.
