This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015, at 01:00 AM EDT shows Hurricane Oho to the east of the Hawaiian Islands with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph. This tropical system is expected to continue its progression northeastward with little impact to the United States. Areas of scattered rain are moving onshore into the Pacific Northwest just ahead of a warm front that is associated with a low pressure storm system in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Rain showers with embedded thunderstorm clusters are moving across the southwestern United States and western Texas just ahead of an upper level trough.
