Tropical Update: 8/17/16

I meant to do a tropical update last night, but I fell asleep in my chair, waiting for the page to load (I needed to reboot). These predictions are based on the National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasts and analysis.

In the Atlantic, Tropical Depression Six has formed over the open Atlantic, with a central low pressure of 1007 mb and sustained winds of 35 mph. This system is expected to become a tropical storm in the near future. It is still over the open ocean, and not yet threatening any coastline.

In the Eastern Pacific, there is an area of potential development over the open ocean south of Mexico. This system has a 30% chance of developing into a tropical storm in the next 48 hours, and a 50% chance in the next five days.

In the Central Pacific, there is an area of potential development southeast of Hawaii. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) give this system a 10% chance of developing in the next 48 hours.

Thank you for reading my post.
