EPAC: INVEST 94E

#1 Postby cycloneye » Wed Sep 30, 2015 7:15 am

EP, 94, 2015093012, , BEST, 0, 107N, 1187W, 20, 1009, DB

A broad area of low pressure has formed about 1000 miles
south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula
and is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual
development, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the
weekend while the low drifts northward or northeastward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent

southern tip of the Baja California peninsula continues to produce
disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions
are expected to be conducive for gradual development, and a tropical
depression is likely to form by the weekend while the low drifts
northward or northeastward. Upper-level winds could become less
favorable for development by early next week.

Shower and thunderstorm activity has become better organized since
yesterday in association with a low pressure system located about
1000 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California
peninsula. Environmental conditions are gradually becoming more
conducive for development, and a tropical depression is likely to
form during the next couple of days while the low moves slowly
northward or northeastward.

There has been little change with the organization of a broad area
of low pressure located a little more than 1000 miles southwest of
the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Environmental
conditions are gradually becoming more conducive for development,
and a tropical depression is likely to form during the next couple
of days while the low moves slowly westward.

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

1. A broad area of low pressure located about 1100 miles southwest of
the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula has become less
organized since yesterday. However, environmental conditions are
still forecast to be conducive for development, and a tropical
depression is likely to form in a few days while the low moves
slowly westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent

1. A broad and elongated area of low pressure located about 1200 miles
southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is
producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental
conditions are expected to be somewhat conducive, and gradual
development is possible while the system moves slowly northeastward
during the next few days.

A broad and elongated area of low pressure located about 1050 miles
southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is
producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
While some gradual development is possible, environmental conditions
are expected to become less favorable during the next few days while
this system moves northeastward at about 5 mph.
