A third tropical cyclone in the space of 3 days has formed in the Central Pacific. This is quite something, given that the last system before these three tropical cyclones to form in this basin was Omeka in 2010. Tropical Depression 03C is located about 1000 miles west-southwest of Hawaii and is moving westwards. 03C has formed in an environment that is not particularly conducive, as waters are warm but shear is moderate to high. The depression however, has managed to maintain a persistant area of convection over the LLCC in the face of the shear. Shear is not expected to ease, so 03C is not forecast to strengthen, and instead is forecast to dissipate in about 36hrs time, near the International Dateline.

03C crossed the International Dateline earlier today. Now, 03C is no more. What's left of it is being absorbed into Tropical Storm Pewa (that's the second cyclone it's gobbled up now LOL).
