Atlantic Hurricane season incredibly quiet – all action in the Pacific

In the Atlantic, the remnant tropical wave of Fred was located between Bermuda and the northern Leeward Islands, and continues to move west.

It will continue to encounter shearing winds aloft, resulting in an environment that is not conducive for any tropical development.

Over in the eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Marty is slowly weakening.

As of Friday morning, Marty was located west-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, while moving slowly northwest.

Maximum winds have decreased to 64km/h as shearing winds aloft begin to weaken the system. Marty should weaken to a depression soon and then becoming a remnant low by this weekend; it will be no threat to any land.

In the Western Pacific, Typhoon Choi-Wan is producing maximum winds of 200km/h, down from its status as a Super Typhoon when it had winds of 260km/h on Wednesday.

Choi-Wan is moving north and will turn more northeast shortly. It is passing west of Iwo To (formerly known as Iwo Jima), and will also stay well to the east of mainland Japan today and Saturday (U.S. time).

Rough and potentially deadly surf will impact the south facing beaches of Japan over the next several days.
