HONOLULU (AP) - A storm heading to Hawaii has been downgraded to a tropical depression.

The National Weather Service says Tropical Depression Hilda is carrying a lot of moisture, posing a rainfall threat to the Big Island.

A tropical storm watch was cancelled for Hawaii County on Wednesday.

Hila continues to move west at 12 mph. As of midday Thursday the storm is 200 miles south-southeast of Hilo.

National Weather Service Hydrologist Kevin Kodama in Honolulu says Hilda is forecast to continue to weaken.

He says the rest of the state could get breezes, some rain and thunderstorms as Hilda passes to the south of the islands.
