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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Octave, located over the southwestern portion of the eastern Pacific basin.

A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms located near the west-central coast of Mexico is associated with a weak low pressure area embedded within an elongated surface trough. Some development of this system is possible before it moves inland over west-central Mexico and dissipates by late Sunday. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall associated with this disturbance could produce flash flooding and mudslides across portions of Michoacan, Colima, and Jalisco, especially in areas of mountainous terrain, during the next few days. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

Showers and thunderstorms have increased near a small low pressure system located over the far southwestern portion of the eastern Pacific basin. However, any further development is expected to be slow to occur while the system drifts slowly westward at about 5 mph. This system is expected to move into the central Pacific basin by late Sunday. * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent. * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
