Surface observations and overnight satellite-derived wind data indicate that the area of low pressure that we have been monitoring during the past few days over the western Caribbean has reformed about 100 miles east of the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border.

Showers and thunderstorms have increased associated with the low pressure system, and surface pressures have fallen during the past several hours. Some gradual development of this system is possible before it moves inland over Central America tonight or Sunday.

Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring heavy rains to portions of Central America this weekend. This rainfall could produce flash flooding, along with mudslides in higher terrain areas.
