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

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical 
Storm Lidia, located several hundred miles south of the southern 
tip of the Baja California peninsula.

1. South of Southern Mexico (EP99):
Showers and thunderstorms are gradually becoming better organized in 
association with an area of low pressure centered a couple of 
hundred miles southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Environmental 
conditions are expected to support further development of this 
system during the next couple of days, and a tropical depression is 
likely to form this weekend. The disturbance is forecast to move 
slowly west-northwestward for the next day or so, and then turn 
northward and move toward the southern coast of Mexico late Sunday 
and Monday. Regardless of development, this system could produce 
heavy rainfall along portions of the coast of southern and 
southwestern Mexico through early next week. Interests in this area 
should monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...80 percent.
