Tropical Storm Potential Rising in East Pacific

The National Hurricane Center has put a center of low pressure in the East Pacific at a 60% chance for tropical cyclone formation. This comes as upper level and lower level winds are not strong enough to disprove the potential for formation. Clouds are beginning to take on a swirling characteristic, indicating that a center of lower pressure may have taken hold inside the invest.
Model guidance indicates that this system will be moving west with time, and steadily strengthening to the point that it may take over 5 days to reach hurricane status.

I will continue watching this system and issue an update if it happens to form into a cyclone today.
