a tropical depression to form later today or on Sunday. Interests

any potential watches or warnings issued this weekend.  Regardless
of development, very heavy rains are expected over portions of
southwestern Mexico during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms is
associated with a broad area of low pressure located south of
Guatemala over the far eastern Pacific. Some gradual development of
this system is possible over the next few days before the system
moves over Central America early next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
