Special Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
700 PM PST Thu Jan 20 2022

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

Special Tropical Weather Outlook issued to update information on 
the area of low pressure located well to the east-northeast of 
Hawaii.

A well-defined area of low pressure producing gale-force winds is 
located more than 1000 miles east-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Shower 
and thunderstorm activity has decreased a little during the past 
several hours.  Environmental conditions appear to be only 
marginally favorable for additional development, and they are 
expected to become much less favorable on Friday.  However, there 
is still a chance for a short-lived subtropical or tropical cyclone 
to form during the next day or so as the low moves northwestward 
to westward. For more information on this system, including gale 
warnings, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather 
Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation change through 5 days...low...30 percent.

The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this system will be 
issued by 7 AM PST this Friday morning, or earlier if conditions 
warrant.
