Central Eastern Pacific:

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms located several hundred miles off the coast of southwestern Mexico are associated with a trough of low pressure.

Environmental conditions could support some slow development during the next couple of days while this system moves little.

Upper-level winds are forecast to become too strong for development late this week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent

South of the Gulf of Tehuantepec:

A broad area of low pressure is forecast to form in a couple of days a few hundred miles south or southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec.

Further development is possible thereafter, and a tropical depression could form late this week or this weekend while the system moves west-northwestward or northwestward at 5 to 10 mph.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
