Two tropical depressions form on same day in East Pacific


Two tropical depressions formed in the East Pacific Thursday.

They are not a threat to the islands.

However things changed rapidly from Wednesday when the forecast models had only a 30-percent chance of becoming a tropical system, and that happened Thursday.

Between the two, tropical depression Eight-E has a chance of becoming a tropical storm while Nine-E, which is closer to Hawaii, will likely stay a tropical depression and pass far to the south of the state early next week.

Eight might grow to a tropical storm, but forecasts have it weakening fast into a remnant low well to the east of the state. We might see some rain from Eight around next Wednesday.
