Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
1100 AM PDT Wed Sep 20 2017

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

A broad area of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles
east-southeast of Acapulco near the coast of Mexico is producing
disorganized showers and thunderstorms.  Land interaction should
limit development of this system during the next day or two, but
a tropical depression will likely form over the weekend when the
system moves farther offshore.  Regardless of tropical cyclone
formation, heavy rains are expected over portions of southern
Mexico during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
