Tropical Cyclone 18E

North Eastern Pacific

Tropical Cyclone 18E is located about 630 miles southeast of Acapulco, Mexico

DEPRESSION A LITTLE STRONGER

According to the NHC Advisory 9…The depression is moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue with a gradual increase in forward speed over the next few days. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so, followed by slight strengthening by early next week.

 

>>> Showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization in association with an area of low pressure located several hundred miles south of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Only a small increase in organization will likely lead to the formation of a short-lived tropical depression either today or tomorrow as the system moves west-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph. Environmental conditions are forecast to become less favorable for further development by early next week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…high…80 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…80 percent
