The National Weather Service’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu issued an updated tropical weather outlook for the Central North Pacific region (between 140 degrees W and 180 degrees W) at 2 p.m. on Monday, July 6, 2015.

A low-pressure system located about 1,450 miles east-southeast of Hilo on Hawaiʻi Island continues to gradually become more organized.

Conditions are expected to remain conducive to development, with a high (70%) likelihood of formation of a tropical depression during the next 48 hours. This system is moving to the west-northwest at approximately 15 to 20 mph.

A weak surface low is producing an area of disturbed weather about 650 miles south-southeast of Hilo. This system remains disorganized and further development is not likely over the next 48 hours. This system is nearly stationary. The formation chance through the next 48 hours is low at 10 percent.


Poorly organized thunderstorms have persisted through the day along the southern edge of a broad low-pressure area about 1,000 miles south-southwest of Honolulu. Some slow development of this system is possible as it remains nearly stationary over the next two days. The possibility of formation is low at 20%.
