CURRENT TROPICAL CYCLONES:

Tropical Cyclone 08E (Douglas)…is located 930 miles west of Honolulu, Hawaii

 

Northeast Pacific

There are no active tropical cyclones A trough of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles off the coast of southwestern Mexico is producing an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Strong upper-level winds are expected to inhibit significant development while the system moves slowly northwestward parallel to, but just offshore, the southwestern coast of Mexico during the next couple of days. * Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent * Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent

Central Pacific

Tropical Cyclone 08E (Douglas)…is a tropical storm with sustained winds of 40 mph https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/storm_graphics/EP08/refresh/EP082020_5day_cone_with_line_and_wind+png/060643_5day_cone_with_line_and_wind.png https://mkwc.ifa.hawaii.edu/satellite/images/goes17/full/13/latest.13.nep.png According to the CPHC Advisory 35A…Douglas is moving toward the west near 23 mph (37 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue the next couple of days. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Douglas is forecast to become a post-tropical remnant low within the next 6 to 12 hours, then dissipate shortly thereafter. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center. HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to spread from French Frigate Shoals to Maro Reef, including Gardner Pinnacles, today and tonight. Tropical storm conditions are then expected over the area from Maro Reef to Lisianski, including Laysan, later tonight into Wednesday. Tropical storm conditions are possible over the area from Lisianski to Pearl and Hermes Atoll on Wednesday. SURF: Large seas and swells generated by Douglas will impact a large swath of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument the next day or two. These swells will produce large breaking waves that could inundate some of the lower-lying atolls. RAINFALL: Rainfall associated with Douglas will impact portions of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument through Wednesday.

Western North Pacific

There are no active tropical cyclones There’s a tropical disturbance, being referred to as Invest 90W, which is located approximately 467 NM northwest of Wake Island. Here’s what the computer models are showing According to the JTWC, this system is characterized as having both tropical and mid-latitude cyclone features. Upper level analysis indicates a marginal environment, with cyclonic easterly flow and moderate to strong 20-30 knot wind shear. However, the system is located over warm sea surface temperatures. The system is expected to recurve poleward in the next 36-48 hours, while becoming absorbed in an approaching frontal system. Maximum sustained winds are estimated at 20-25 knots. The potential for the system to transition into a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is low. Satellite image of this area
