For the central North Pacific...between 140W and 180W:

Far east-southeast of the Main Hawaiian Islands (CP91): 
A weak area of low pressure located more than 700 miles 
east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii continues to have sporadic 
disorganized thunderstorms displaced to the east. Strong 
upper-level winds will likely continue to inhibit any significant 
development of this system as it moves westward at around 10 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...low...near 0 percent.

Central East Pacific (EP97):
Showers and thunderstorms have changed little in organization in 
association with a broad area of low pressure located about 2700 
miles east-southeast of the  Hilo, Hawaii. Gradual development of 
the disturbance is likely, and a tropical depression is expected to 
form late this weekend or early next week while the system moves 
generally westward across the central and western parts of the 
eastern Pacific basin. This system may potentially cross into the 
central Pacific basin around the middle of next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...80 percent.

Elsewhere, no tropical cyclones are expected during the next 7 days.
