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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Elida, located a couple hundred hundred miles southwest of the 
southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

An elongated area of disturbed weather is located around 1500 miles 
southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. A 
low pressure system is expected to form within this area in a day or 
two, and it will likely become a tropical depression late this week. 
The system is expected to move slowly westward toward the central 
Pacific basin during the next several days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

An area of low pressure is forecast to develop well south or 
southwest of the southwestern coast of Mexico in a couple of days.  
Environmental conditions appear conducive for development 
thereafter, and this system will likely become a tropical depression 
late this week or over the weekend while it moves generally 
west-northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

Another area of low pressure is expected to form in a few days over 
the far eastern portion of the basin to the south of the coast of 
Central America. Gradual development of this system is possible, and 
a tropical depression could form this weekend while it moves 
generally west-northwestward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.
