Track of Areas of Low Pressure

Two areas of low pressure can be observed near the coast of Mexico in this image. Closer to the shoreline is a small area of low pressure located about 150 miles south-southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico that is producing a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms and winds to near tropical storm force. However, this disturbance currently lacks a closed surface circulation. This system has a medium chance (30 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours before it merges with the larger low to its south.

This larger low, however, is a patch of showers and thunderstorms that continues to show signs of organization in association with an area of low pressure located about 350 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development of this system, and it could become a tropical depression during the next day or so as it moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph. This system has a high chance (70 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

Low Pressure System Southwest of Mexico Has High Chance of Becoming Tropical Depression

Track of Low Pressure System

Cloudiness and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system located about 750 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, have continued to show little change in organization over the past several hours. However, environmental conditions appear to be conducive for this low to become a tropical depression during the next day or so. This system has a high chance (80 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves westward or west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.

Track of TS 05E

A small but well-defined area of disturbed weather became organized enough to be declared as Tropical Depression Five-E on July 7, about 500 mi (800 km) SSW of Acapulco, Mexico. It is currently expected to steadily intensify into a Category 2 hurricane before entering cooler Sea Surface Temperatures (SST).

As of 8 p.m. PDT (0300 UTC July 8) July 7, Tropical Storm Emilia is located within 45 nautical miles of 10.7°N 103.2°W, about 580 mi (930 km) south of Manzanillo, Mexico and about 480 mi (775 km) south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are 35 knots (40 mph, 65 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1003 mbar (hPa; 29.62 InHg), and the system is moving west-northwest at 14 kt (16 mph, 26 km/h).

Track of TD 02E

As Tropical Depression Two-E slightly accelerated to the west, the storm continued to organize, eventually intensifying into tropical storm Bud on May 22, with 40 mph sustained winds. Bud remained at this intensity for one day before strengthening, starting early on May 23 and reached winds of 65 mph (100 km/h) the following afternoon.

As of 2 p.m. PDT (2100 UTC) May 23, Tropical Storm Bud is located within 20 nautical miles of 14.2°N 107.9°W, about 420 mi (680 km) southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are 60 knots (70 mph, 110 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 991 mbar (hPa; 29.28 InHg), and the system is moving north at 5 kt (6 mph, 10 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km) from the center of Bud.

Tropical Storm Kenneth (13E) South of Mexico

Mexico - November 20th, 2011

A small part of Tropical Storm Kenneth can be seen south of Mexico in the lower left corner of this image. According to forecasters, it is the latest-forming tropical cyclone in the North Pacific east of 140°W since Tropical Depression Twenty-Two-E on November 24, 1987, as well as the latest forming named storm since Winnie in 1983. Since 1949, only a total of three storms are known to have formed later than this, the others being Sharon in 1971 and an unnamed storm in 1951.

Early on November 16, an area of disturbed weather formed several hundred miles to the south of the southern coast of Guatemala. For the next 3 days, the disturbance moved towards the west, as it gradually organized, displaying intense thunderstorm activity at times. By November 19, the disturbance had gained enough organization to be declared as a tropical depression, the thirteenth of the season. The next day, the depression organized enough to become a tropical storm, and earned the name Kenneth.

As of 1 p.m. PST (2100 UTC) November 20, Tropical Storm Kenneth was located within 40 nautical miles of 11.5°N 105.6°W, about 525 mi (845 km) south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds are 35 knots (40 mph, 65 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 1005 mbar (hPa; 29.68 InHg), and the system is moving west-northwest at 11 kt (13 mph, 20 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center of Kenneth.
