Track of Neki

The center of Hurricane Neki (03C) is estimated to be located within 15 nm of 18.0°N 166.8°W, about 620 mi (1000 km) west-southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii and about 410 mi (660 km) south of French Frigate Shoals.

The system has maximum sustained winds of 100 kt (115 mph, 185 km/h), with higher gusts. It has a minimum central pressure of 960 mbar (28.35 inches), and is moving north-northwest at 8 kt (9 mph, 15 km/h).

Hurricane force winds extend up to 40 miles (65 km) from the center of Neki, and tropical storm force winds up to 255 miles (410 km) from the center.

A hurricane warning is in effect for the Papahanaumokuakea National Monument from Nihoa Island to French Frigate Shoals to Maro Reef, meaning that hurricane conditions are expected in the warning area within 36 hours.

A hurricane watch also extends as far as Lisianski, meaning that hurricane conditions are possible in the watch area within the next 48 hours. The tropical storm watch for Johnston Island, however, has been discontinued.
