A Look at the Pacific Basin

The eastern Pacific region near Central America and the coast of Mexico has been quite active with tropical waves and large areas of disturbed weather. Currently there is a tropical wave near Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico that shows potential for further strengthening.

Tropics Continue to Boil

The tropics continue to boil. A large region from northern Brazil, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia to the west-central Caribbean, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Southern Mexico is being affected by disturbed weather, rain and thunderstorms. What appears as a tropical wave is on the eastern Pacific close to the coast of Nicaragua and may warrant monitoring for potential further development in the next 12-24 hours. Far away in the western Pacific a tropical storm developed quickly from a tropical wave and it is moving toward the Philippines.
