south of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula 
southwestward several hundred miles. The northeastern portion of the 
trough has slowly organized during the past couple of days and is 
producing persistent shower and thunderstorm activity. 
Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for 
development and a tropical depression is likely to form during the 
next day or so while the system moves west-northwestward or 
northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.  The system is forecast to move over
