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

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently
upgraded Tropical Storm Howard, located a few hundred miles south of
the southern tip of Baja California.

Well East-Southeast of the Hawaiian Islands:
A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms is
associated with a broad trough of low pressure located more than
1000 miles east-southeast of the Hawaiian Islands. Some gradual
development of this system is possible through the middle part of
this week while it moves generally westward into the central
Pacific basin.

Tropical Storm Howard Discussion Number   7
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       EP092022
900 PM MDT Sun Aug 07 2022
 
The overall appearance of Howard has improved slightly over the past 
several hours, with the center of the cyclone tucked underneath the 
southern edge of a mass of intense deep convection.  The latest 
Dvorak intensity estimates from TAFB, SAB, and the UW-CIMSS ADT are 
all in agreement that the system remains a 35-kt tropical storm. 
However, the recent trend in organization suggests some 
strengthening may be soon underway.  An automated weather station on 
Socorro Island this evening measured peak sustained wind speeds of 
36 kt and a gust to 49 kt, while the center of Howard's circulation 
passed about 50 n mi to the south-southwest of that location.
 
Howard continues its northwestern heading, or 315/11 kt to the
southwest of a mid-level ridge. This motion is expected to continue
over the next couple of days.  After 48 h, the cyclone is expected
to turn toward the west as the weakening system becomes steered
by the large-scale low-level flow.  The latest NHC track forecast
is little changed from the previous one and is near the tightly
clustered track guidance.
 
The storm has about 36-48 h to take advantage of warm SSTs, a moist 
atmospheric environment, and weak vertical wind shear.  After that 
time the forecast path of the cyclone takes it over progressively 
cooler waters and into a much drier and more stable airmass.  The 
NHC forecast calls for some modest strengthening through 36 h, then 
steady weakening commencing after that time.  The forecast also 
indicates that the system will degenerate into a remnant low by 96h. 
However, the both the CMC and ECMWF simulated satellite imagery 
suggest that this could occur as soon as 60 h from now.  The NHC 
intensity forecast is slightly higher than the various multi-model 
consensus solutions, and lower than the HWRF and GFS.
