Weather Underground Forecast for Thursday, August 21, 2014

Tropical cyclone development is not anticipated across the Atlantic Basin on Thursday. Tropical Storm Lowell is expected to maintain tropical storm strength as it drifts northwestward over the eastern Pacific. Lowell will be located approximately 1,050 nautical miles west of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with wind speeds ranging between 39 to 73 mph (33 to 64 kts). Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Karina is expected to diminish as it moves slowly westward over the eastern Pacific. The remnants of Karina will be located roughly 1,200 nautical miles east southeast of the Big Island of Hawaii, with wind speeds staying below 39 mph (33 kts). Additionally, a cluster of showers and thunderstorms will be situated several hundred nautical miles south southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. This system will have a low, 10% chance to develop into a tropical cyclone as it pushes west northwestward. In the Atlantic Basin, an elongated area of low pressure stretching from the northeastern coast of South America to the central Atlantic will have a medium, 30% chance to develop into a tropical cyclone. Just to the east, a tropical wave will be located roughly halfway between the Lesser Antilles and the west coast of Africa. This system will have a low, 10% chance to develop into a tropical cyclone as it pushes west northwestward. For more information regarding tropical cyclone activity, please visit
