NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite imagery provided a look at the end of the second named tropical cyclone of the Eastern Pacific Ocean’s 2020 Hurricane Season. Satellite images and tracking maps of Tropical Storm Boris 2020, June 22 - 30. In mid-July, a poorly defined tropical wave moved into the southwestern portion of the basin within the proximity of the wave that would later become Tropical Depression Seven-E.[67] Located further south and in more favorable conditions than the disturbance to its west, the wave began to steadily organize into July 19. Meanwhile, a tropical wave that had left the coast of Africa around May 18 crossed Panama into the Eastern Pacific on the 29th. At 03:00 UTC on August 9, the NHC declared that the system had become Tropical Depression Nine-E, as the system had developed persistent convection and a closed circulation. Hawaii lies in the Central Pacific Ocean. This marked the earliest formation of a tropical cyclone in the basin, surpassing 2017's Tropical Storm Adrian. So far, the season has been below average in terms of tropical cyclones, the first such occurrence since 2010, with only 14 named storms, 4 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes forming. The wave caused the low-pressure area to become more organized and develop a well-defined circulation, and it became Tropical Depression Two-E at 18:00 UTC on May 30. Elida was generally short lived, but with the formation of Tropical Depression Ten-E, Tropical Storm Fausto, and Hurricane Genevieve activity continued. The wave spawned an area of low pressure further west that gradually organized, and after finally developing organized and persistent deep convection, it was deemed sufficiently organized to be designated as Tropical Depression Seven-E at 06:00 UTC on July 20. Boris reached maximum strength with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph and weakened back to a depression in 12 hours by 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) on June 26. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite imagery provided a look at the end of the second named tropical cyclone of the Eastern Pacific Ocean’s 2020 Hurricane Season. Despite redeveloping a well defined circular eye after completing the cycle, the storm continued weakening due to cool seas surface temperatures and at 09:00 UTC, the storm was downgraded below major hurricane status. [8][9] Not for nearly another month after Amanda, Tropical Depression Three-E would briefly become Tropical Storm Boris on June 25 well out to sea before weakening in the Central Pacific basin. [35] By June 22, the disturbance formed coactively with a tropical wave and was expected to consolidate into a tropical depression by the weekend. [22][23] El Salvador President Nayib Bukele declared a 15-day national state of emergency due to the storm. [58] After emerging off the Pacific coast of Honduras, the wave tracked quickly west-northwestward south of Mexico, where upper-level winds were not very conducive for formation. Ho… [18], In El Salvador, torrential rainfall caused significant damage along coastal cities in the country as rivers overflowed and swept away buildings. This is a table of all the storms and that have formed in the 2020 Pacific hurricane season. Its boundaries are the Marshall Islands to the west and the Line Islands to the east. [89] On August 21, Ten-E again entered a favorable environment for development as its remnants continued southwest, and was briefly monitored by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center for possible redevelopment. [134] In Nayarit, a mudslide occurred on a hill behind a populated neighborhood in Xalisco, however no damage has been reported from this incident. Visible imagery from NASA satellites help forecasters understand if a storm is organizing or weakening. [45] Thunderstorm activity quickly increased with the low into July 6,[46] and as organization steadily improved the storm became a tropical depression just 6 hours later at 21:00 UTC, the fifth of the season. [156] Karina then weakened below tropical storm status late on September 16, before degenerating into a post-tropical cyclone by 09:00 UTC the next day. [142] Iselle then made a very close pass to Clarion Island, where tropical-storm force winds were reported, before weakening thereafter. [90] Despite this, the storm failed to regenerate and it was last mentioned on August 23. Tropical Cyclone Boris formed in the Eastern Pacific Ocean on Wednesday, June 24 and by early on Sunday, June 29, the storm had become a remnant low-pressure area. [127] At least 400 people were evacuated in Jalisco,[128] and 18 people stuck on their roof in the state had to be rescued. [76] Early on July 23, Douglas proceeded to intensify to a high-end Category 3 hurricane, the first major hurricane of the season. [79] Douglas continued to weaken as it approached Hawaii; it brushed the Hawaiian Islands on July 26 and 27 as a Category 1 hurricane. [184] The remnants began showing signs of organization over the next two days. [155] Karina slowly strengthened over the next couple of days, reaching its peak intensity around 09:00 UTC on September 15. The season officially began on May 15 in the East Pacific Ocean, and on June 1 in the Central Pacific; they will both end on November 30.

[55] Conditions continued to decline rapidly,[56] and Cristina fully degenerated into a remnant low early on July 13. [19] Amanda killed 14 people in El Salvador,[20] of which at least six died due to flash flooding, and one died from a collapsed home. [40] Nevertheless, the storm's organization was short-lived as it drifted on top of colder waters and as a result convection began to wane. The remnants of Elida formed a broad and symmetrical post-tropical cyclone, and caused light to moderate winds and large waves on the beaches in the Baja California Peninsula, though no damage was reported. [166], On September 24, the NHC first noted the possibity of tropical cyclogenesis offshore Mexico. At that time, center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Boris was located near latitude 12.1 degrees north and longitude 142.0 degrees west. [43] Expectations gradually increased for development as conditions became more conducive in the eastern part of the basin,[44] and the low eventually developed on July 5. [60] Initially expected to strengthen to a tropical storm, the convection associated with the system rapidly waned in the following hours, and the system remained weak and fragile as it moved westward.
