It is time for another tropical update.
In the Atlantic and Caribbean, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has shown that there is one threat area north of Puerto Rico. This area stands a 40% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours, and a 60% chance over the next five days.
In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Jova churns over open waters. Currently, it has a central low pressure of 1003 mb and 40 mph sustained winds. It is over very warm water, but it is in a moderately sheared environment, and expected to weaken over the next few days.
There is a second area of potential development farther east. Currently, the NWS has given it a 30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours, but a 70% chance over the next five days.
The Central Pacific expects no tropical systems to develop in the next 48 hours.
