500 PM PDT Fri May 17 2024

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

1. South of the Coast of Southwestern Mexico:
An elongated area of low pressure located several hundred miles
offshore of the coast of southwestern Mexico continues to produce a
small area of showers and thunderstorms. Marginal environmental
conditions due to nearby dry air are likely to limit significant
development of this system as the low remains nearly stationary
during the next day or so. By late this weekend, the low is forecast
to interact or merge with another system to its east, and further
development is not expected.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...20 percent.
2. South of the Coast of Southern Mexico:
Disorganized showers and thunderstorms continue several hundred
miles to the south of the coast of southern Mexico in association
with a trough of low pressure. Development of this system, if any,
should be slow to occur as it moves slowly westward during the next
few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...20 percent.
