East Pacific Remaining Rather Tranquil
Last Update: 26-JUL-2009 05:33am EDT
The East Pacific tropical basin remains mostly tranquil due to the lack of organized clusters of thunderstorms. Upper-level winds are also unfavorable west.
We are watching several small tropical waves, the first of which is located near 95 west, south of 20 north. This wave has recently shown an explosion of thunderstorms, although no organized circulation center has yet been detected. It could slowly develop as it moves generally west and northwest across warm waters with relatively low wind shear the next few days. Other tropical waves lacking more convection are located along 115 west, south of 15 north. These tropical waves remain disorganized with no low or upper-level features at this time. So no tropical development is expected into early next week. http://hurricane.accuweather.com/hurricane/basin-story.asp?partner=netweather&traveler=0&basin=epacific
