Tropical Update: 6/23/17

It is time for another tropical update.  The highlight of this week has been Tropical Storm Cindy, which has become a post-tropical depression.  It is currently centered over West Virginia and Pennsylvania, with a central low pressure of 1004 mb and sustained 20 mph winds.

The infrared imagery shows that the precipitation is largely to the northeast of the center of low pressure.

In the Eastern Pacific, the NHC is watching one area of potential development over the open waters south of Mexico.  Currently, this area has a 80% chance of development in the next two days, and 90% chance of development in the next five days.  I will be keeping an eye on this system.

The infrared imagery shows a disorganized mess at this time, but it wouldn’t take much for this to become organized.

There are no tropical systems expected over the Central Pacific in the next few days.

Thank you for reading my post.
