The system is now a strong Category 2 Hurricane, carrying maximum sustained winds of 110 mph, with hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles and tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 105 miles from the center.

Forecasters said that a "large swell generated by Lane is expected to reach the southeast- and east-facing shores of the Big Island, and possibly east-facing shores of Maui, by this evening", producing large and risky surf by tonight or early Monday.

Hurricane Lane is the sixth hurricane of the 2018 Pacific season and is projected to cross into the central Pacific on Saturday.

There have already been strong storms in the Pacific Ocean in 2018, and the Pacific Ocean off San Diego hit a record high this month, CBS News' Jamie Yuccas reports.

Gradual weakening is expected Sunday, though Lane will remain a major hurricane for the next couple days.

Lane has intensified quickly since forming in the East Pacific last week.

Computer models predict that Lane may take a path similar to Hurricane Hector.

There were no coastal advisories in effect, but the NHC's cone of probability showed the storm could come close enough to Hawaii to cause tropical storm-force winds next week.

This would mean that the centre of the storm would keep south of the Hawaiian islands.

Derek Wroe, forecaster with the National Weather Service in Honolulu, said: "Warm ocean water is the fuel for hurricanes".

"By midday Saturday, it should be approximately 1,000 miles southeast of the Big Island".
