It is a time for another tropical update. Mostly, because it is too late in the day for a full local prediction, and because Hurricane Joaquin is so impressive on enhanced infrared satellite imagery.
In the Atlantic, the big focus is Hurricane Joaquin, which now has a central low pressure of 967 mb and sustained winds of 85 mph. East of Joaquin, there is another area of potential tropical cyclogenesis; the National Hurricane Center (NHC) gives this area a 50% chance of developing in the next two days, and an 80% chance of developing over the next five days.
In the Eastern Pacific, Marty has weakened to Tropical Depression status. Currently, the central low pressure has climbed to 1005 mb, and the sustained winds have weakened to 30 mph.
No tropical cyclogenesis is forecasted over the Central Pacific.
