The eye of the Category 2 storm was located about 1,375 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii, and 1,550 miles east of Honolulu, the NHC said in its 2 p.m. PDT update.

Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center say Olivia is forecast to be approaching the Hawaiian Islands on Tuesday with some gradual weakening forecast during the next 72 hours.

In today's area synopsis, the National Weather Service says, "Light and variable winds will continue through Monday as Tropical Storm Norman tracks northward and away from the state". The still-Category 2 storm was moving west-northwest at 15 miles per hour as of Friday evening. "Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", the advisory says. Hurricane Isaac is now located 1,305 miles west of the Windward Islands with sustained wind speeds of 75 mph. A watch means residents should prepare for severe weather conditions within 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds and conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky.

On Saturday, Olivia is forecast to be the fifth hurricane to enter the Central Pacific this hurricane season. "The majority of inland flood fatalities occur in vehicles". Hurricane Lane last month dropped more than 50 inches of rain across the Big Island.

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area.

"We're monitoring this storm closely and taking steps now to ensure that we're prepared for its impacts to the state".

A high surf warning remains in effect for east-facing shores of all islands, CBS Honolulu affiliate KGMB reports.
