Disorganized showers and a few thunderstorms continue in association
with a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles
south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California
peninsula.  Any development of this system is expected to be slow to
occur while it moves slowly westward or west-northwestward during
the next few days.
