The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the Hawaiian Islands should monitor the storm's progress.
Meteorologist Melissa Dye says the southern half of the island should brace for winds of 35 miles per hour (56.3 kph) or higher.
Hurricane-force winds expected up to 30 miles from the center of the storm, while tropical storm-force winds reach up to 105 miles from the center.
The storm was about 1,390 miles southeast of the Hawaiian islands, and it was uncertain if it would hit or just brush by the southern edge of the Big Island by Wednesday, said a meteorologist at the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park Maryland. She says there could also be a few inches of rain into Thursday as Hector passes the island.
Hurricane Hector roared through the Central Pacific on Sunday and is expected to pass near the Big Island of Hawaii, where a volcano continues to send lava into the sea.
Depending on its ultimate track, the storm could bring thunderstorms, gusty winds and increased surf to parts of the island and could also cause risky rip currents off the east- and south-facing beaches.
