New Tropical Storm Forming in the Far Western East Pacific; Tropical Depression Eight-E Weakening

7/29/2015 5:40:12 PM

Tropical Depression Eight-E is located over 1,295 miles to the east of Hilo Hawaii. The weak tropical cyclone is moving west around 16 mph. This motion should continue through at least the next 24 hours.

Depression 8-E will move west towards drier and more stable air and as a result it will continue to weaken. As the system moves over cooler water tomorrow and tomorrow night it should weaken to a non tropical feature.

Low pressure 1350 miles miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California has become better organized and should become a tropical depression and perhaps a tropical storm within the next 12-24 hours. All indications are that this evolving tropical cyclone will track through a very favorable environment conducive to further development as it moves northwest during the next several days well away from any major land mass. Long range computer forecasts suggest this tropical cyclone could pass near or over parts of the Hawaiian Islands around middle or latter part of next week.

Elsewhere across the basin, there are no immediate threats for tropical development.
