TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
500 PM PDT SUN AUG 30 2015

For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on major
Hurricane Jimena, located well east of the Big Island of Hawaii.

Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure
located about 650 miles miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico,
have become better organized since yesterday.  Environmental
conditions are conducive for development, and this system is likely
to become a tropical depression during the next day or two while
it begins to move northwestward at about 10 mph. If development has
not occurred by mid-week, less favorable upper-level winds could
make tropical cyclone formation less likely.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent
