Tropical Depression Eight-E Moving Westward

7/28/2015 4:39:12 AM

Tropical Depression Eight-E is located over 1,200 miles to the west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. It continues to track across the open waters of the East Pacific moving west-northwestward around 10-15 mph.

The storm has limited time and space for any strengthening, but it could become a tropical storm within the next 12-24 hours. If it is upgraded it will take the name Guillermo. Computer projections suggest this system will move west-northwest for the next several days which will keep it well away from any important landmasses.

Eventually, the system will move over cooler waters and into an area of stronger wind shear. This will likely cause the system to weaken and then eventually dissipate in the next 72-96 hours.

Aside from Tropical Depression Eight-E, we are also monitoring an area of low pressure southeast of Eight-E which is currently around 1,100 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. This low pressure center will be moving through a zone of warm ocean waters and low wind shear over the next several days. Thus, this area low pressure is likely to become a tropical depression and perhaps even a tropical storm within the next several days. This system is also on a course that should keep it well away from any important landmass for several days.

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