Storm Watch: Two new Pacific storms taking shape for this weekend

A tropical wave located a few hundred miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for gradual development during the next few days, and a tropical depression is expected to form later this week or by this weekend. The system is forecast to move west-northwestward or northwestward, likely remaining a few hundred miles off the coast of southwestern Mexico.

Another area of low pressure is forecast to form south of the southern coast of Mexico by late this week. The gradual development of this system is possible thereafter, and a tropical depression could form by early next week while the disturbance moves westward or west-northwestward near the coast of southern Mexico.

If these two storms take on a name for the Pacific Hurricane Season 2022, they would use the names Javier and Kay.

For the 2022 forecast, 9 hurricanes and 8 tropical storms are predicted for the Pacific Ocean; that is, 17 named storms when the typical number is 15. There have been nine named storms for this season that will end on November 30, 2022.

Without a doubt, the hurricane season affects the population in general, but especially the providers of tourist services on beaches, since these storms generate torrential rains, strong winds, and waves, so it is recommended to take the necessary precautions.

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the reason why this year will be more active in the Pacific Ocean is due to the presence of the “La Niña” phenomenon, which produces changes in the direction and strength of the winds.
