MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Henriette (hen-ree-EHT') is expected to weaken as it moves across the Pacific, far from land.

The hurricane's maximum sustained winds late Wednesday remained near 85 mph (140 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says additional weakening is forecast by Thursday as Henriette moves over cooler waters.

Henriette is centered about 1,235 miles (1987 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii, and is moving west-northwest near 10 mph (17 kph).
