THE DAILY CYCLONE NEWS
Tropical Storm Gaston is centered near 16.1N 39.4W at 24/1500 UTC or about 886 nm west of the Cabo Verde Islands moving northwest at 14 kt. Estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb. Maximum sustained wind speed is 60 kt with gusts to 75 kt. Scattered moderate convection is from 14N-19N between 36W-44W.
A 1007 mb low pressure center is near 14.5N108.5W, moving west-northwest near 15 knots. The low pressure center has developed from a tropical wave moving through that area, where a broad low level easterly wind surge continues to produce scattered to locally numerous moderate to strong convection within 300 nm across the NE and 150 nm across the SW semicircles. 20-25 kt easterly winds are assumed to be occurring at the surface within this 300 nm NE semicircle, where seas are running 7-9 ft. Satellite imagery continues to show improving organization of this system with a well defined middle level circulation evident. Environmental conditions are conducive for this system to develop into a tropical cyclone later today through Thursday. A gale warning has been issued for this system for Friday morning in anticipation that these winds will be realized within 48 hours, as indicated by the majority of the global models.
A large and complex tropical wave is along about 126W, moving westward at 10 to 15 knots. The associated moisture and convection spans the area along the monsoon trough between 120W and 130W. An elongated 1007 mb surface low has become better defined during the past 12 hours, and is located near 11N122W. Scattered to locally numerous moderate to strong convection is occurring from 09N to 13N between 121.5W and 127W. A broad zone of fresh easterly trade winds prevails north of the low from about 13N to 17N between 118W and 129W, where seas are running 6-8 ft. Environmental conditions are conducive for a gradual improvement in organization of this system, and it has a medium chance for tropical cyclone development within the next 48 hours. However, global models suggest a tropical cyclone may develop by this weekend as the low moves west to west-northwestward.
Typhoon Lionrock (Dindo) is currently located 130 miles (210 kilometers, 112 nautical miles) south of Minamidaitō, Japan. It currently has 10-minute sustained winds of 100 mph (125 mph, 1-minute sustained), a minimum central pressure of 945 hPa (mbar; 27.91 inHg) and is currently moving southwest at 6 kn (11 km/h; 6.9 mph).
There is a tropical depression located northwest of Guam.
A tropical wave moving across the Lesser Antilles with axis extending from 21N66W to a 1009 mb low near 18N63W to 12N61W. At this time, scattered moderate convection is observed from 15N-21N between 61W-68W. As of 25/1500 UTC; an Air Force Reconnaissance aircraft and latest scatterometer data reported gale force winds from 17N-20N between 61W-65W in association to this system. Although environmental conditions are currently marginally conducive for additional development, this system could become a tropical depression or tropical storm at any time during the next few days while it moves west-northwestward at about 10-15 kt across the northern Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the Bahamas. Strong winds, heavy rains, and flash floods and mudslides are possible across these islands. This system has a medium chance of tropical formation through the next 48 hours.
A tropical wave previously analyzed along 100W has moved NW overnight and this morning and inland across southern and south central Mexico. Associated low and middle level clouds and convection occurring behind this wave have spread across the Mexico City area to as far north as Tampico and interior portions to the west.
