Disturbance In Eastern Pacific Continues To Get Better Organized

While conditions for tropical formation in the Atlantic are relatively docile at the moment, the Eastern Pacific is pushing toward its 12th named storm of the season. The broad area of low pressure that was being monitored by Hurricaneville last night has continued to get better organized as it heads to the West-Northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour. Located some 1025 miles to the Southwest of Cabo San Lucas on the Southern tip of Baja California, the low continues to show signs of development, and there is a high chance (greater than 50 percent) that this low will become a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours according to the National Hurricane Center. However, it remains well away from land at the moment. Elsewhere, there is no other disturbances at this time.
