Tropical Update: 8/4/17

It is time for another tropical update.

In the Atlantic and Caribbean, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has two tropical waves that are serving as zones of development.   The Caribbean zone has a 20% chance of developing in the next 48 hours, but a 50% chance over the next five days.  The zone over the eastern Atlantic has a 50% chance over the next 48 hours, and an 80% chance over the next five days.

In the Eastern Pacific, there is quite a bit of activity.  There is one Tropical Storm, one Tropical Depression, and one area of potential development.

Tropical Depression 11E is over the open waters of the Eastern Pacific.  Currently, it has 35 mph sustained winds and a 1005 mb central low pressure.  This storm is expected to enter a vertically-sheared, drier and more stable environment.  Because of this, the storm will likely dissipate in the next 48 hours.

The Central Pacific expects no tropical systems to develop in the next 48 hours.
