Tropical Update: 8/11/17

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.

Thank you for reading my post.
