    Tropical Depression 18 forms well off Mexican coast

    9/25/2016 5:05:30 PM

    Tropical Depression 18 has formed. It is located 785 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Latest satellite imagery shows intense convection. But, it's south of the circulation center. Environmental conditions will be favorable as it tracks slowly to the north and northeast over the next few days. It is expected to eventually turn back northwest and dissipate. Thus, 18 poses no threat to land.

    A second area of disturbed weather is located about 1,250 miles east-southeast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Environmental conditions are a bit more hostile within this region, which will limit any quick development in the near term. However, as the system continues to track to the west, it will encounter increasingly more favorable atmospheric conditions which could provide a slow-strengthening trend toward the middle of the upcoming week.

    For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:
    The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on newly formed
    Tropical Depression Eighteen-E, located well southwest of the
    southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.
    A broad area of low pressure located about 1250 miles east-southeast
    of the Big Island of Hawaii continues to produce disorganized
    showers and thunderstorms.  Any development of this disturbance
    should be slow to occur during the next couple of days.  After that
    time, environmental conditions could become more conducive for
    development.  This system is expected to move west-northwestward
    during the next day or so, and then turn northward as it approaches
    the Central Pacific basin.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent
