Subtropical Storm Debby forms in north Atlantic

Tropical Storm Ileana

The hurricane, which is still a category four storm, is expected to pass approximately 265 km south of Hawaii's Big Island on Wednesday (local time). Forecasters say tropical-storm-force winds could affect the Big Island Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Debby poses no threat to land, as the storm is located about 1,150 miles west-northwest of the Azores.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Hector is also swirling in the Pacific as an impressively organized Category 4 hurricane.

Hector's center will track about 150 miles south of the Big Island today, then continuing westward, remaining well south of the rest of the Hawaiian Islands through Thursday. Swells generated by Hector are expected to reach southeast and east facing shores of the Big Island and eastern Maui late today, likely becoming large and risky by late tonight and Wednesday.

Prepare for $90 oil after sanctions against Iran take effect
Ultimately, I think this market will continue to be very noisy, as the geopolitical issues continue to push oil markets around. The sanctions will remove one million barrels of Iranian oil per day from global markets, French Societe Generale estimated.

Swells from Hector will produce surf heights from 12 to 15 feet on east-facing shores mainly for the Puna and Kau districts of the Big Island Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. It was likely to bring rain to the southern part of peninsula as well as heavy surf. Combined with high tides, this could lead to some overwash of low-lying coastal areas and perhaps some beach erosion. According to NOAA, when two hurricanes spinning in the same direction pass close enough to each other, they begin an intense dance around their common center.

Hurricane Hector, with 130 mph winds, is about 540 miles east-southeast of Hilo. Debby is forecast to dissipate in a couple of days.

Remember that the forecast track and intensity can and will change.
