Tropical storm Debby strengthens in Atlantic but is expected to weaken soon

Ileana formed as a tropical depression on Saturday, Aug. 4, south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec and about 250 miles (400 km) south-southeast of Puerto Angel, Mexico. But the U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ileana now is predicted to remain a tropical storm before dissipating by late Tuesday due to the influence of the larger John.

Wind: Tropical-storm-force winds (39 to 73 mph) are possible across the Big Island late Tuesday and Wednesday. A tropical storm watch was in effect for a much broader swath of coast, from Los Barilles to Todos Santos. It was likely to bring rain to the southern peninsula, as well as heavy surf.

On the other side of the Pacific, Typhoon Shanshan is approaching Japan with maximum winds around 100 miles per hour.

The storm is not now a threat to any land.

Subtropical storm Debby has officially formed in the deep Atlantic.

The eye of the storm, which had wind speeds as high as 217 km/h at its centre on Wednesday afternoon, is forecast to pass 300 kilometres to the south of the Big Island tomorrow.

At 8 a.m. EDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Ileana was located near latitude 15.7 degrees north and longitude 101.2 degrees west.

Hector also posed no immediate threat to land, but forecasters said people in Hawaii should monitor the storm's progress as it was projected to pass just south of the islands by midweek.

The CSU has forecast nine more named storms before the season ends in November, with three expected to become hurricanes and one a major hurricane.

Farther out in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kristy had sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) and was moving west-northwest at 8 miles per hour (13 kph).
