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

Central East Pacific (EP97):
An area of low pressure is located over 2350 miles east-southeast 
of Hilo, Hawaii. Recent microwave imagery indicates that showers 
and thunderstorms associated with this system have become better 
organized, though it remains unclear if a well-defined surface 
circulation has formed. Regardless, further development of this 
system is anticipated and a tropical depression is likely to form 
during the next couple of days. The system is moving westward at 15 
to 20 mph, and this general motion is expected to continue for the 
next several days. This system may potentially cross into the 
central Pacific basin around the middle of next week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days...high...80 percent.

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