Tropical depression Genevieve continued to weaken today and was expect to become a remnant low by Sunday. The system, located about 1,200 miles east-south of Hilo, was moving west at 8 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour on Saturday evening. National Weather Service forecasters gave a small chance of the low regenerating in a few days as it encounters more favorable upper-level conditions in the Central Pacific.
