Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI
800 AM HST Sat Aug 12 2023

For the central North Pacific...between 140W and 180W:

1. Approximately 1400 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii (EP99):
A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is 
producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms 
well to the east-southeast of the Hawaiian Islands. Conditions 
appear conducive for development of this system, and a tropical 
depression is likely to form during the next few days while moving 
toward the west or west-northwest at about 10 mph across the far 
western portion of the basin, crossing into the Central Pacific 
basin late Sunday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...80 percent.

2. Central East Pacific (EP98):
Showers and thunderstorms continue to become better organized in 
association with a low pressure system located several hundred 
miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California 
peninsula, and it appears that a tropical depression or tropical 
storm could be forming.  If these trends continue, advisories would 
likely be initiated on this system later today. The low is expected 
to move westward to west-northwestward at about 10 mph across the 
central portion of the basin during the next few days. This system, 
if it develops, may cross into the Central Pacific basin next 
Thursday or Friday.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...90 percent.

Elsewhere, no tropical cyclones are expected during the next 7 days.
