Eastern Pacific Tropical Cyclone Outlook for September 24th, 2020

HIRSC - Weather Team is continuing to monitor Tropical Cyclone Lowell (currently a Tropical Storm with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and continue to move to the West at 12 mph) in the Eastern Pacific region. The center of Lowell is 1,830 miles East-Southeast of Hilo, Hawaii Island.


Current and future forecast models show Lowell beginning a weakening trend expected to turn into a tropical depression on Friday and later a remnant low by Saturday.


Future models show the remnants of Lowell are expected to get caught in the trade wind flow and the windward side of Hawaii Island could see increase trade showers sometime late next week.
