Updated: 9/6/2018 1:54:23 AM
Hurricane Norman took a predicted turn to the west-northwest this afternoon, but remains a dangerous Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph, forecasters said.
At 5 p.m., the storm was about 385 miles east of Hilo and 570 miles east of Honolulu, moving west-northwest at 9 mph.
“This motion is expected to continue tonight, followed by a northwestward motion on Thursday and Friday,” Central Pacific Hurricane Center forecasters said this evening. The movement was a predicted change from the last few days when Norman was moving west toward the Hawaiian islands.

Hurricane Norman is now a category 3 storm with maximum wind speeds at 120 mph. Hurricane Miriam continued to weaken, while another tropical depression formed in the Pacific.

Norman is moving toward the west-southwest near 8 mph. A turn toward the west and west-northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected over the weekend and into next week.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 120 mph, with higher gusts. Norman is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Gradual weakening is forecast over the next 24 hours but Norman is expected to remain a powerful hurricane through the early part of next week.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles.
