No tropical cyclone formation forecast in Central Pacific

June 9, 2017 - 10:57am

KAILUA-KONA — No tropical cyclone formation is expected in the Central Pacific through this weekend, according to forecasters at the Honolulu-based Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami also said Friday that no tropical cyclones were expected to form in the Eastern Pacific during the next couple of days.

However, forecasters are keeping tabs on a broad area of low pressure that is expected to form this weekend or early next week a file hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico. It still has just a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone within five days.
