Newly-formed Tropical Depression Two-C has organized further throughout the day, intensifying into a Tropical Storm Monday afternoon. It has been given the Hawaiian name Ana.

Forecasters say Ana is expected to intensify steadily, becoming a hurricane late Tuesday and maintaining hurricane strength through the remainder of the five-day forecast period.

At 5 p.m. Monday, the center of Ana was located about 900 miles east-southeast of Hilo. The track and intensity of the storm are still subject to change. There is a higher degree of uncertainty for the fourth and fifth days.
