A TRIPLE-PLAY ACROSS THE CENTRAL/EASTERN PACIFIC! (credit: NWS National Hurricane Center)
DISCUSSION: Across the Central and Eastern Pacific Ocean, there is currently a triple-play of tropical systems; namely, Tropical Storm Celia, Hurricane Darby, and a Tropical Disturbance located within the Eastern Pacific Ocean! Despite this currently being the heart of the Eastern Pacific Hurricane season, it is still fairly impressive to see three tropical systems at the same time. Note how Hurricane Darby is appearing to remain fairly organized at this time as it has sustained its intensity through the course of Thursday as a strong Category 1 Hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 90 MPH and a minimum central pressure of 982 mb. In addition, Tropical Storm Celia has weakened a lot; it is maintained its current status (from as of earlier today) as a Tropical Storm with maximum sustained winds of 50 MPH with a minimum central pressure of 1000 mb. As for the third tropical disturbance, it will continue to remain within a region which is particularly favorable for tropical development over the next few days.
