of low pressure located several hundred miles southwest of the
southern tip of the Baja California peninsula remains elongated, and
the system does not have a well-defined center.  In addition, the

organization.  Although the window of opportunity for development is
decreasing, a tropical depression is still likely to form by tonight
or on Sunday while the system moves northward at 5 to 10 mph.  By
Sunday night or Monday, however, additional development is not
expected due to cooler waters and stronger upper-level winds.
