Tropical-Pacific weather for Tuesday, September 14, 2021
No development in the basin
At this time, the eastern Pacific basin remains calm.
The area of weather disturbance we monitor along Mexico’s southwest coast has remained too close to the coast for development, and at this time it seems unlikely to turn into a
tropical depression. Elsewhere, no tropical development is expected over the next few days.
Chanthu remains almost stationary
Tuesday afternoon EDT Chanthu, known as Kiko in the Philippines, is now a tropical storm east-southeast of Shanghai, China. The storm is drifting very slowly east-southeast.
Chanthu is expected to remain almost stationary off the coast of central China until Wednesday. However, given that this is a small storm in the area and has lost additional wind intensity, the threat of strong
rains and destructive winds have largely ceased over eastern China, including the Shanghai area. Only a few random squalls remain with brief heavy rains and gusts of wind.
Later this week, Chanthu is expected to start moving much faster east-northeast with impacts on South Korea and Japan possible Friday in the weekend local time.
No new information for this period.
