Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 17th-26th.

Now, for your Nationwide Severe Weather Outlook. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has no highlighted risk area over the next 2 to 3 days.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, (#1) Shower activity has changed little in association with a broad area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles Southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Some gradual development of this system is still possible in a few days after it encounters a more conducive environment while it moves Westward at about 15mph. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, (#1) A large area of cloudiness and showers centered a few hundred miles South-Southeast of Acapulco, Mexico, is associated with a tropical wave. Strong upper-level winds are expected to limit significant development of the wave during the next couple of days. After that time, however, environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive, and a tropical depression is likely to form later this week while the system moves generally West-Northwestward at 10 to 15mph. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a High chance, 70%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Central Pacific, (#1) Hurricane Julio has winds of 80mph, gusting to 95mph, with a pressure of 986mbars. Movement is Northwest at 9mph. Is expected to weaken to a tropical storm by tomorrow then to a tropical depression by Saturday. Not a threat to land. In the Western Pacific, (#1) Tropical Storm Genevieve has winds of 65mph, gusting to 80mph, with a pressure of 985mbars. Movement is Northwest at 17mph. Is expected to weaken to a depression by late Tuesday/early Wednesday. Will dissipate within the next few days. Is not a threat to land. In the North Indian Ocean, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South-West Indian Ocean Region), all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (Australian Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South Pacific Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days.
