Synopsis for the E Pacific within 250 nm of Mexico
314 PM PDT Mon Aug 19 2019

.SYNOPSIS...1008 mb low pressure located near 13N95W will move 
WNW at around 5 kt accompanied by numerous showers and 
thunderstorms and gusty winds, moving across the S Mexico waters 
through Wed. Increasing winds and building seas are expected as 
the low parallels the Mexican coast up to west of Baja California
Sur by Fri. A gale warning is in effect for offshore Mexican
waters from Michoacan south. This low has a medium chance for 
tropical cyclone formation during the next couple of days. High 
pressure well northwest of the area will promote fresh to strong 
NW winds offshore of Baja California Norte through Tue night. Low
pressure over the U.S. Great Basin will induce moderate to fresh
S winds over the Gulf of California Thu and Fri.
