    The National Hurricane Center is tracking two systems in the Eastern Pacific off the coast of Mexico. Tropical depression Five-E has formed today and forecast to become a hurricane by 7-14-15.


    The JTWC is tracking this and two western Pacific Typhoons:

    Thanks to El Nino, it'll be a very active storm season in the Pacific Ocean this year.

    That is very true. Even for our friends and families in Hawaii.

    I heard a great explanation as to why:

    "El Nino and La Nina were secretly married years ago. All the kids are brats"

    GOES-West JSL2 7-15-15 1200 UTC.jpg

    Hurricane Dolores has reached Category 4 over the past several hours. The storm is about 900 miles south of the US border and is already pushing moisture into Arizona and New Mexico.

    It is possible that this system may briefly reach Category 5 in the coming hours before starting to dissipate.

    Twin tropical depressions Eight-E and Nine-E have formed in the eastern pacific. Nine-E should be a hurricane by Friday 7-31-15. When these two areas cross 140 degrees west (center of this GEOS West Image), they will fall under the area of responsibility of the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) Hawaii. Stay tuned... <this image should auto refresh>
