The East Pacific Ocean
Quiet for now in the East and Central Pacific
Updated: September 19, 2020 6:01 PM EDT
There are no active systems in the Eastern or Central Pacific Basin at this time, and none are expected to develop over the next couple of days. That said, an area of showers and thunderstorms southwest of Mexico has a moderate chance to develop into a tropical depression next week as it moves west-northwestward, away from from the coast. Conditions are expected to support gradual intensification next week, and this disturbance could become Tropical Storm Lowell later in the week, and perhaps reach hurricane intensity thereafter. Regardless, no threat to land is expected over the next seven days.
Elsewhere things are quiet with no other disturbances of note.
