A small area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms, about 1200
miles southwest of the Baja California peninsula, is associated with
a tropical wave. Some gradual development of this system is
possible over the weekend while the disturbance moves westward at
about 10 mph.

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a tropical wave
located about 1200 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja
California peninsula remains limited. Some gradual development of
this system is possible during the next several days while it moves
westward at about 10 mph.

of the Baja California peninsula remains limited. Some gradual
development of this system is possible during the next several days
while it moves westward at 5 to 10 mph.

ECMWF merges this with a system to its right. May briefly become a TD or weak TS at best.

Very complex setup here but both GFS/ECMWF eventually merge this with the 0/20.

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a broad area of low
pressure located about 1450 miles west-southwest of the southern
tip of the Baja California peninsula remains limited. Some gradual
development of this system is possible through early next week while
it moves westward at 5 to 10 mph.

1. Shower activity associated with a broad, slow-moving area of low
pressure located about 1400 miles west-southwest of the southern tip
of the Baja California peninsula remains limited and disorganized.
Environmental conditions are conducive for slow development as it
merges with a disturbance approaching it from the east, and a
tropical depression is likely to form later this week while the
system begins to moves westward to west-northwestward at 10 mph.

1. The circulation associated with a slow-moving low pressure area
located about 1400 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja
California peninsula has changed little in organization since
yesterday. Cloudiness and shower activity also remains
disorganized. However, environmental conditions are expected to be
conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is
likely to form later this week while the low begins to moves west-
northwestward and then northwestward at 10 mph.

1. Showers and thunderstorms are showing signs of organization in
association with a slow-moving low pressure area located about 1450
miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California
peninsula. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive
for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form
in a few days while the low moves west-northwestward at 10 mph.

Satellite data overnight that the circulation of the slow-moving low
pressure area located about 1500 miles west-southwest of the
southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is gradually becoming
better defined. Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with
this system has also become better organized since yesterday.
Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for continued
gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form
during the next day or two while the low begins to move slowly
northwestward.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
1100 AM PDT MON AUG 24 2015

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

Satellite imagery indicates that the low pressure system located
about 1500 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja
California peninsula is slightly better defined than at this time
yesterday. Environmental conditions are expected to remain
conducive for continued gradual development, and any further
increase in organization of this disturbance could result in the
formation of a tropical cyclone. The low is expected to begin
moving slowly westward and then west-northwestward during the next
few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent

12z ECMWF did bring this just north of Hawaii as a TC. I doubt it though.

Satellite imagery and satellite-derived surface winds indicate that
the low pressure system located about 1500 miles west-southwest of
the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula has continued to
become better organized. Environmental conditions are conducive
for additional development and only a slight increase in
organization would result in the formation of a tropical depression
tonight or Tuesday. The low is expected to move slowly
westward and then west-northwestward during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent

BULLETIN
TROPICAL DEPRESSION TWELVE-E ADVISORY NUMBER 1
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP122015
800 PM PDT MON AUG 24 2015

...TWELFTH TROPICAL DEPRESSION OF THE SEASON FORMS OVER THE OPEN
WATERS OF THE TROPICAL PACIFIC...


SUMMARY OF 800 PM PDT...0300 UTC...INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------
LOCATION...13.1N 130.9W
ABOUT 1535 MI...2470 KM WSW OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...35 MPH...55 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...W OR 270 DEGREES AT 3 MPH...6 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1007 MB...29.74 INCHES


WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 PM PDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Twelve-E
was located near latitude 13.1 North, longitude 130.9 West. The
depression is moving slowly toward the west near 3 mph (6 km/h) and
this general motion is expected to continue during the next
couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and the
depression is forecast to become a tropical storm on Tuesday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
None


NEXT ADVISORY

TROPICAL DEPRESSION TWELVE-E DISCUSSION NUMBER 1
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL EP122015
800 PM PDT MON AUG 24 2015

Conventional satellite imagery shows deep convection associated with
the area of low pressure located well southwest of the southern tip
of Baja California has become better organized and increased in
coverage since yesterday. Additionally, an 1852 UTC ASCAT-B
scatterometer overpass indicated that the surface circulation has
become sufficiently well defined. Accordingly, advisories are being
initiated on the twelfth tropical depression of the 2015 eastern
Pacific hurricane season. Dvorak intensity estimates support an
initial intensity of 30 kt. The cyclone is expected to traverse
warm sea surface temperatures and move within a marginally conducive
thermodynamic environment during the entire forecast period,
resulting in only gradual intensification. Around day 4, the
large-scale guidance and the SHIPS model show increasing
southwesterly shear which should induce a weakening trend and this
is also reflected in the official forecast.

The initial motion is estimated to be at 270/3 kt. A low- to
mid-level ridge extending westward to the north of the cyclone
from northern Mexico should influence a generally westward motion
during the next couple of days. Beyond the 48 hour period, global
and hurricane models indicate a deep-layer trough weakening the
ridge to the northeast of the Hawaiian Islands causing the
depression to turn toward the west-northwest and continuing in this
direction through day 5. The NHC forecast is based on a blend of
the GFEX (GFS/ECMWF) and the TVCX multi-model consensus.

FORECAST POSITIONS AND MAX WINDS

INIT 25/0300Z 13.1N 130.9W 30 KT 35 MPH
12H 25/1200Z 13.0N 131.4W 35 KT 40 MPH

48H 27/0000Z 13.2N 135.4W 50 KT 60 MPH
72H 28/0000Z 15.0N 139.4W 60 KT 70 MPH

06z continues to keep it weak but brings whatever is left of it into the big island. GFS and Euro are generally in agreement with the steering situation. The Ridge should weaken for this to eventually go NE.
