There’s an area of disturbed weather in the southern Pacific Ocean, circled in yellow above…which has a low chance of developing

Here’s a real-time wind profile of the area – along with a JTWC satellite image

Eastern North Pacific

The eastern Pacific hurricane season officially ended on November 30. Therefore, the last regularly scheduled tropical weather outlook of the 2014 hurricane season has occurred. Routine issuance of the tropical weather outlook will resume on May 15, 2015. During the off-season, special tropical weather outlooks will be issued as conditions warrant.The Pacific Disaster Center (PDC) will begin coverage of the eastern Pacific again on May 15, 2015.

THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 15.5S 154.9E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 16.3S 157.2E, APPROXIMATELY 405 NM EAST OF WILLIS ISLAND. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS PERSISTENT CONVECTION SHEARED EAST-SOUTHEAST OF A BROAD AND ELONGATED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 220201Z AMSR-2 36GHZ MICROWAVE IMAGE DISPLAYS AN ILL-DEFINED LLCC WITH DISORGANIZED CONVECTION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE SYSTEM IS LOCATED IN A MARGINAL ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO MODERATE (10 TO 15 KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) PARTIALLY OFFSET BY EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A DEEP-LAYERED TROUGH LOCATED JUST WEST OF THE DISTURBANCE. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1009 MB. DUE TO THE UNORGANIZED NATURE OF THE SYSTEM AND THE INCREASING VWS AS IT TRACKS SOUTHWARD, THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS LOW.
