East Pacific Remains Mainly Quiet
Last Update: 25-JUL-2009 08:36am 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 of 105 west.
We are watching several, smaller tropical waves, the first of which is located near 90 west, south of 17 north. This wave has recently shown an explosion of thunderstorms, though 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 105 west from the Mexican coast on south, along 115 west south of 15 north and along 140 west, south of 16 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
