Hurricane Henriette is shrinking as it moves across the Pacific, with winds that were 85 mph early Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says weakening is forecast over the next two days and Hurricane Henriette could weaken to a tropical storm by Thursday night.

The storm is centered about 1,170 miles (1,885 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii, and is moving west-northwest near 9 mph (15 kph).

Just yesterday it was reported that Hurricane Henriette was expected to increase to a Category 2 storm, according to Chris Vaccaro, the director of public affairs at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). But a storm is defined by the speed of its winds, and it looks like Hurricane Henriette won't get more severe.
