CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:

Tropical Cyclone 29W (Kammuri)…located approximately 140 NM north-northeast of Yap, FSM

 

https://www.metoc.navy.mil/jtwc/products/abpwsair.jpg

 

Tropical Cyclone 29W (Kammuri)

Sustained winds are 70 knots with gusts to 85 knots…as of Warning 10

Here’s what the computer models are showing

According to the JTWC, environmental analysis depicts a favorable environment with strong poleward outflow, low to moderate 15-20 knot wind shear, and a very warm sea surface temperatures in the Philippine Sea.

Kammuri will track northward by 24 hours, then by 36 hours, the system will resume a more westward track.

The overall favorable environment will likely fuel steady to rapid intensification to near 120 knots by 72 hours.

After 72 hours, TY 29W will continue to track westward, with further intensification to 125 knots by 120 hours…just below super typhoon status.

 

Northeast Pacific

There are no active tropical cyclones

According to the NHC, A non-tropical area of low pressure located west of the Baja California peninsula is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms from northwestern Mexico southwestward across the Baja California peninsula. Although this system is not expected to become a tropical cyclone, it will likely produce heavy rains and strong winds over portions of the Baja California peninsula, the Gulf of California, and northwestern Mexico through early Thursday. This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…near 0 percent

2019 Hurricane Season Summary for the Central Pacific Basin

The 2019 hurricane season featured five tropical cyclones in the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) area of responsibility, which is near the season average. Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. The Central Pacific basin extends from 140°W to the International Date Line. Four to five tropical cyclones occur during an average year.

Hurricane Erick was the first tropical cyclone of the season in the Central Pacific, moving into the basin from the east on July 30. Erick rapidly intensified to a major hurricane (category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale) later that day, then steadily weakened as it passed far south of the main Hawaiian Islands. Tropical Storm Flossie entered the basin on August 3 and approached Hawaii from the east, eventually dissipating before reaching the islands. Tropical Depression 12-E entered the basin on September 4 and strengthened to Tropical Storm Akoni. Akoni was the first tropical cyclone to be named from the Central Pacific list of names since Hurricane Walaka in 2018. Tropical Depression Kiko entered the basin on September 24 and immediately dissipated. Tropical Storm Ema, the second cyclone to be named from the Central Pacific list of names, developed southwest of the main Hawaiian Islands on October 12. Ema dissipated over the southern portion of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument shortly before crossing between French Frigate Shoals and Maro Reef.

Impacts to the State of Hawaii: Swells from Tropical Cyclone Barbara, which dissipated just before crossing into the Central Pacific basin, led to high surf along east facing shores of the state during July 6-9. Remnant moisture from Barbara also led to heavy rain across Maui and Hawaii Counties during July 8-11. Swells generated by Tropical Cyclones Erick and Flossie led to high surf along east and south facing shores during August 1-6. Moisture associated with Erick also contributed to heavy rain over Hawaii County on August 2, and across Kauai County during August 4-5.

Hurricane Season Outlook: NOAA’s 2019 hurricane season outlook issued on May 22, 2019, called for five to eight tropical cyclones in the Central Pacific basin, with a 70% chance of above-normal tropical cyclone activity, a 20% chance of near-normal activity, and a 10% chance of below-normal activity. The 2019 season started with an El Niño event that was expected to last through the fall. Instead, steady cooling commenced early in the summer leading to neutral conditions by the heart of the hurricane season.
