Another system, Tropical Storm Henriette has strengthened and was located about 1785 miles E SE of Hilo or 14-hundred miles off the southern tip of Baja California, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

That system reportedly had sustained winds of 60 mph and was moving west at 6 mph.

NHC forecasters say the system could become a hurricane by tomorrow.
