Eight-C is now a post-tropical cyclone south of Hawaii.

Tropical Storm Oho is moving northeast away from the state and is no longer expected to become a hurricane, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

At 5 a.m., Oho was 390 miles south of Hilo and 540 miles south-southeast of Honolulu, moving northeast at 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles.

Oho is moving to the north-northeast, but it expected to head to the northeast later today with a gradual increase in forward speed, forecasters said.

The latest track keeps the system to south and east, far enough to have minimal impacts on the wind over the islands, according to the hurricane center. The storm could result in widespread showers across the Hawaii island and on the windward areas of the other islands by midweek.

Forecasters continue to track post-tropical cyclone Eight-C, which was 425 miles south-southwest of Johnston Island and 1,160 miles southwest of Honolulu as of 5 p.m. Sunday. The system is moving northwest at 3 mph with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph.

Eight-C is expected to turn to the west-northwest with an increase in forward speed tonight and Monday.

The National Weather Service predicts that moderate trades will continue as the island remain within a high-pressure system to the north and Oho to the south.

There were no warnings or advisories in effect as of Sunday evening.
