BASED ON SATELLITE IMAGERY...WEATHER OBSERVATIONS...RADAR...AND 
METEOROLOGICAL ANALYSIS.

BASED ON 0000 UTC SURFACE ANALYSIS AND SATELLITE IMAGERY THROUGH 
0215 UTC.

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

A 1008 MB SURFACE LOW S-SW OF ACAPULCO MEXICO IS EMBEDDED IN THE 
MONSOON TROUGH NEAR 14N99W AND IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF 
ORGANIZATION. THERE IS NO ASSOCIATED DEEP CONVECTION AT THIS 
TIME. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR FURTHER 
DEVELOPMENT AND THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE OF TROPICAL FORMATION 
DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS. 

...INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH...

MONSOON TROUGH EXTENDS FROM 10N85W ALONG 14N954W TO 1008 MB LOW 
NEAR 14N99W ALONG 9N106W 6N126W TO 4N132W. ITCZ EXTENDS FROM 
13N125W ALONG 11N133W TO 10N140W. SCATTERED MODERATE TO STRONG 
CONVECTION IS FROM 8N-11N BETWEEN 85W-87W INCLUDING COAST OF

WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA LATE TUE WITH SEAS INCREASING BY EARLY 
WED. 

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE ANCHORED OVER N MEXICO NEAR 27N107W AND 
COVERS THE AREA N OF 12N E OF 120W. STRONG SUBSIDENCE WITH 
DRY/STABLE AIR ALOFT IS W OF THIS UPPER RIDGE TO THE UPPER 
TROUGH ABOVE. UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENT FLOW OVER MEXICO AND S OF 
MEXICO IS ENHANCING SCATTERED MODERATE TO STRONG CONVECTION  
FROM 17N-20N E OF 106W TO OVER MEXICO AND WITHIN 45 NM ALONG THE 
COAST OF CENTRAL AMERICA BETWEEN 87W-92W. 

A WEAK SURFACE RIDGE EXTENDS FROM A 1018 MB HIGH W OF THE AREA 
NEAR 25N145W WITH RIDGE AXIS EXTENDING THROUGH 25N140W TO BEYOND
