Tropical Weather-Pacific for Saturday, August 6, 2022


Eastern Pacific:

Tropical Depression 9-E forms

Tropical Depression 9-E formed southwest of Mexico. The storm is expected to become a tropical storm by tonight and would get the name Howard. The storm is expected to remain well offshore,

however the storm can still bring rough surf and rip currents to coastal areas of southwestern Mexico.

Elsewhere, low pressure forming in the far western end of the eastern Pacific basin may develop and organize further next week as it tracks westward into the central Pacific basin. Regardless of

development, this feature should remain well south of the Hawaiian Islands.

Western Pacific:

Tropical rainstorm forming in the South China Sea

As of Saturday afternoon, EDT, there are no tropical cyclones in the basin, but a tropical rainstorm is taking shape northwest of the Philippines. It is expected to track west-northwest and across

the South China Sea, where conditions can become conducive for it to strengthen to a tropical depression and tropical storm late in the weekend or early next week. The system will likely impact

southern China, Hainan Island or northern Vietnam around the middle of next week.

Southern Pacific:
