For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:
1. An elongated area of low pressure located several hundred miles
south of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula
continues to produce a large area of disorganized cloudiness and
thunderstorms. Conditions appear favorable for development, and a
tropical depression is expected to form during the next couple of
days while the system meanders or drifts northward a few hundred
miles offshore the coast of southwestern Mexico.

this system, and a tropical depression is likely to form by the
middle of the week while it moves slowly northwestward, near or
parallel to the southwestern coast of Mexico. Regardless of
