HONOLULU — Tropical Storm Ana is forecast to strengthen to a hurricane this week as it moves toward the southern edge of Hawaii’s Big Island, which was hit by a destructive tropical storm two months ago, meteorologists said Tuesday.
Ana is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane — the lowest level, with winds of 74 to 95 mph — this morning, National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Brenchley said.
The storm is forecast to clip the Big Island’s rural Puna district on Saturday. The storm’s effects may be felt up to 100 miles outside its center.
