1. WESTERN NORTH PACIFIC AREA (180 TO MALAY PENINSULA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY:
      (1) AT 200000Z, TROPICAL STORM 12W (AMPIL) WAS LOCATED NEAR 
22.8N 130.9E, APPROXIMATELY 279 NM SOUTHEAST OF KADENA AB, OKINAWA, 
AND HAD TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 09 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX 
HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 50 KNOTS 
GUSTING TO 65 KNOTS. SEE REF A (WTPN32 PGTW 200300) FOR FURTHER 
DETAILS.
      (2) NO OTHER TROPICAL CYCLONES.
   B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY:
      (1) AN AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 96W) HAS PERSISTED NEAR 
11.1N 146.0E, APPROXIMATELY 148 NM SOUTHEAST OF GUAM. ANIMATED 
MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A POORLY-ORGANIZED LOW LEVEL 
CIRCULATION (LLC), DEVOID OF DEEP CONVECTION. A 180002Z MHS METOP-A 
89GHZ IMAGE SHOWS SCATTERED CONVECTION WITH A WEAKLY DEFINED LLC. A 
RECENT ASCAT PASS SHOWS A BROAD AND ELONGATED CIRCULATION WITH 
SEVERAL 15-20 KNOT WINDS ALONG THE SOUTHERN SEMI-CIRCLE. UPPER LEVEL 
ANALYSIS DEPICTS THE DISTURBANCE IS LOCATED IN AN AREA OF LOW TO 
MODERATE (10-15 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR OFFSET BY WEAK OUTFLOW 
ALOFT. SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (28-30 CELSIUS) WILL AID FUTURE 
DEVELOPMENT. GLOBAL MODELS EXPRESS THAT 96W WILL SLOWLY CONSOLIDATE 
OVER THE NEXT 48-72HRS AND TRACK TO THE NORTHWEST, SKIRTING GUAM. 
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS. 
MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1006 MB. THE 
POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE 
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS LOW.
      (2) AN AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 98W) HAS PERSISTED NEAR 
18.5N 115.0E, APPROXIMATELY 217 NM SOUTH-SOUTHEAST OF HONG KONG. 
ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A WEAKLY DEFINED 
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT 98W IS 
LOCATED IN AN AREA OF FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT WITH LOW TO MODERATE (10-
15 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND PERSISTENT OUTFLOW ALOFT. A RECENT 
ASCAT PASS SHOWS 15-20 KNOT WINDS LOCATED IN THE SOUTHERN QUADRANT. 
WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES (28-30 CELSIUS) IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA 
ARE CONDUCIVE FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT. GLOBAL MODEL INDICATE POSSIBLE 
DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPACT SYSTEM WITHIN 48-72 HOURS WITH A NORTHEAST 
TRAJECTORY. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 
20 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 1005 
MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL 
CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS LOW.
      (3) NO OTHER SUSPECT AREAS.
2. SOUTH PACIFIC AREA (WEST COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA TO 135 EAST):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
   B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY: NONE.//

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI
800 PM HST Thu Jul 19 2018

For the central North Pacific...between 140W and 180W:

An area of showers and thunderstorms located about 1000 miles
southeast of Hilo, Hawaii has become slightly more organized in
the past 12 hours. Environmental conditions will be marginally
conducive for some further development during the next few days as
the system tracks westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent

An elongated area of low pressure located about 1450 miles southwest
of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing
cloudiness and showers while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.
Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few
days before upper-level winds become too strong for development by
early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an area
of low pressure passing about 500 miles southwest of Hawaii
has become increasingly disorganized over the past few hours.
Strong upper level winds will prohibit development as the system
tracks westward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent

Elsewhere, no tropical cyclones are expected through the next 5
days.

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
1100 PM PDT Thu Jul 19 2018

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

An elongated area of low pressure located about 1450 miles southwest
of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing
cloudiness and showers while it moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.
Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few
days before upper-level winds become too strong for development by
early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms centered
several hundred miles southwest of Acapulco, Mexico, is associated
with a tropical wave.  Upper-level winds are forecast to become
increasingly favorable for development over the weekend, and a
tropical depression could form early next week while the system
moves westward at 10 to 15 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

An area of low pressure is likely to form early next week several
hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico.  Environmental
conditions then appear to be conducive for gradual development of
this system while it moves westward or west-northwestward well south
of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
