Tropical Update: 9/21/16

It is time for another tropical update.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) shows one tropical storm and one tropical depression in the Atlantic.

Tropical Storm Lisa is over the open ocean, with sustained 45 mph winds and a central low pressure of 1004 mb.  However, Lisa is fighting strong shear, and may weaken soon.

Tropical Depression Karl shows some signs of better organization, though his sustained winds remain at 35 mph and the central low pressure is 1007 mb.

In the Eastern Pacific, the NHC is watching two areas of potential development.  Both of these are unnamed low pressure systems at this time.

The first area is over the open ocean, and shows a 20% chance of developing into a tropical system over the next two days, and a 30% chance of developing over the next five days.

The second area is closer to Mexico, but currently over open ocean.  This system has a 50% chance of developing in the next two days, and an 80% chance of developing over the next five days.
