1. NORTH INDIAN OCEAN AREA (MALAY PENINSULA WEST TO COAST OF AFRICA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
   B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY:
      (1) AN AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 96B) HAS PERSISTED NEAR 
20.0N 88.9E, APPROXIMATELY 210 NM SOUTHWEST OF CHITTAGONG, 
BANGLADESH. ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A 
FULLY EXPOSED LLCC WITH SPARSE CONVECTION TO THE SOUTHWEST. 
PREDOMINANTLY EASTERLY FLOW ALOFT IS INDUCING HIGH (25-35 KTS) VWS 
WITH SOME UPPER LEVEL DIVERGENCE IN THE SOUTHWEST ENABLING THAT 
SPARSE CONVECTION. SSTS ARE VERY WARM (28-30 CELSIUS) IN THE BAY OF 
BENGAL. GLOBAL MODELS GENERALLY AGREE THAT 96B WILL BE SHORT-LIVED 
POSSIBLY MAKING LANDFALL NEAR THE INDIAN/BANGLADESHI BORDER AROUND 
211200Z. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 10 TO 15 
KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED TO BE NEAR 994 MB. 
THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE 
WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS LOW.

1. WESTERN NORTH PACIFIC AREA (180 TO MALAY PENINSULA):
   A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY:
      (1) AT 201800Z, TROPICAL DEPRESSION 13W (THIRTEEN) WAS LOCATED 
NEAR 17.8N 117.2E, APPROXIMATELY 291 NM NORTHWEST OF MANILA, 
PHILIPPINES, AND HAD TRACKED EAST-SOUTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE 
PAST SIX HOURS. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 25 
KNOTS GUSTING TO 35 KNOTS. SEE REF A (WTPN31 PGTW 202100) FOR 
FURTHER DETAILS.
      (2) AT 201800Z, TROPICAL STORM 12W (AMPIL) WAS LOCATED NEAR 
25.4N 129.3E, APPROXIMATELY 104 NM SOUTHEAST OF KADENA AB, AND HAD 
TRACKED NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. 
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS WERE ESTIMATED AT 45 KNOTS GUSTING 
TO 55 KNOTS. SEE REF B (WTPN32 PGTW 202100) FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
      (3) 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) THE AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 98W) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED 
NEAR 18.3N 116.5E, IS NOW THE SUBJECT OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNING. 
SEE PARA. 1.A.(1) FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
      (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.
3. JUSTIFICATION FOR REISSUE: UPGRADED AREA IN PARA 1.B.(2) TO 
WARNING STATUS.//

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center Honolulu HI
200 PM HST Fri Jul 20 2018

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

An area of disturbed weather is located about 850 miles
southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Thunderstorm coverage in the area has
increased slightly over the past 12 hours. Environmental conditions
will be marginally conducive for slow 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

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low
pressure are located a little more than 1500 miles west-southwest of
the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.  The shower
activity has not become any better organized today, and the system
is heading toward unfavorable upper-level winds. The low is expected
to move westward at 15 to 20 mph and cross into the Central Pacific
basin late this weekend or Monday with no significant development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

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

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
500 PM PDT Fri Jul 20 2018

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

Showers and thunderstorms associated with a broad area of low
pressure are located a little more than 1500 miles west-southwest of
the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.  The shower
activity has not become any better organized today, and the system
is heading toward unfavorable upper-level winds. The low is expected
to move westward at 15 to 20 mph and cross into the Central Pacific
basin late this weekend or Monday with no significant development.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

Another area of disturbed weather is located several hundred miles
south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Although this system is not
showing any signs of organization at this time, conditions are
forecast to become favorable for development and a tropical
depression could form early next week.  This disturbance is expected
to move toward the west-northwest at 15 to 20 mph during the next
several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

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