Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 12th-24th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Central Pacific, Hurricane Henriette has weakened. Winds are at 75mph with a pressure of 992mbars. Movement is West-Southwest at 14mph. Is expected to begin weakening as it heads South of Hawaii. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms associated with a weak area of low pressure located about 800 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some development of this disturbance over the next few days as it moves Westward at 10-15mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, 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. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, a low pressure trough located about 1600 miles Southwest of the Southern Tip of Baja California is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for gradual development of this system during the next few days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, 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.
