Tropical Update: 7/12/16

It is a time for another tropical update.

In the Atlantic, conditions are quiet. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is forecasting no tropical systems over the next 48 hours.

In the Eastern Pacific, there are two tropical systems, and one place of potential development. Hurricane Celia is weakening, barely at hurricane status, with only 75 mph sustained winds and a central low pressure of 986 mb. Tropical Storm Darby is increasing in strength, with 65 mph sustained winds and a central low pressure of 1000 mb. It continues to move away from the Mexican coastline. There is also one area of potential development, with a 0% chance over the next two days, but an 80% chance over the next five days.

In the Central Pacific, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) is also tracking Hurricane Celia, though it is a long ways from Hawai’i at this point.

Thank you for reading my post.
