Tropical Update: 7/14/17

It is time for another tropical update.

In the Atlantic and Caribbean, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is not anticipating any tropical storms over the next 48 hours.

In the Eastern Pacific, there is quite a bit of activity.  There is Hurricane Fernanda, as well as two other potential zones of development.

Hurricane Fernanda is moving west, with sustained winds of 145 mph and a central low pressure of 947 mb.  Thankfully, it is over the open water.  It is currently going through an eyewall replacement cycle, and will current thinking is that it is drifting into an area with colder sea surface temperatures, which will lead to its weakening.

The infrared imagery shows the well-organized Hurricane Fernanda.  There is a well-developed eye to this storm at this time.

There are no additional storms expected in the Central Pacific for the next 48 hours, though Hurricane Fernanda is drifting into this region.

Thank you for reading my post.
