Tropical Update: 8/18/15

It is a time for another tropical update.

In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Danny has formed over low latitude open waters. Currently, the sustained winds are at 50 mph and the central pressure is 1000 mb. The system is in a low vertical wind shear environment, which will allow the system to strengthen. Danny is expected to reach hurricane strength after a few days.

The enhanced infrared satellite imagery shows that the storm is not yet organized.

In the Eastern Pacific is forecasted to be quiet for the next 48 hours, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

In the Central Pacific shows one area of likely development. According to the NHC, this system has a 60% chance of cyclogenesis in the next 48 hours.
