There are no active Tropical Cyclones
North Eastern Pacific
A low pressure system located over the far eastern Pacific more than 100 miles southwest of Costa Rica is gradually becoming better defined. Shower and thunderstorm activity is also beginning to show signs of organization, and environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for the formation of a tropical depression during the next couple of days.
The system is forecast to move slowly westward to west-northwestward away from the coast of Central America during the next several days.
Regardless of development, this disturbance is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall across portions of Costa Rica through today, which could result in flooding and mudslides.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…high…70 percent
>>> An area of disturbed weather is located several hundred miles south-southwest of Acapulco, Mexico.
Some slow development of this system is possible during the next several days while it moves westward to west-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph well to the south of the southern coast of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent
