This graphic shows the projected path and intensity for the next five days of Hurricane Orlene at 5 a.m.

Hurricane Orlene started tracking westward overnight while continuing to weaken.

Back to a Category 1 hurricane, Orlene is too far away to say if it will affect Hawaii’s weather next week.

At 5 a.m., Orlene was packing maximum sustained winds of 80 mph. It was 620 miles west-southwest of Baja California, Mexico, traveling west at 2 mph.

Hurricane-force winds extend 25 miles from the center and tropical storm-force winds extend 90 miles from the center.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center expect the storm to continue weakening over the next 48 hours and become a tropical storm by tonight or early Thursday.

    We really don’t need any more rain. Global warming must have something to do with these storms. Wasn’t like this a few years back.

      I’m a believer of man made global warming but this could also be a natural El Nino cycle. Hard to draw definitive conclusions just based on a few years. These things run in cycles.
