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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Kiko, located more than 1000 miles west-southwest of the
southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, on Tropical Storm
Mario, located several hundred miles south of the southern tip of
the Baja California peninsula, and on Tropical Storm Lorena,
located a couple of hundred miles south of Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

An elongated trough of low pressure lying near the coast of
southeastern Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador is producing a
large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers that extends
several hundred miles southward over the Pacific waters.  Gradual
development of this system is anticipated during the next several
days, and a tropical depression could form over the weekend while
moving westward or west-northwestward at 5 to 10 mph.  Locally heavy
rainfall is possible along the coasts of El Salvador, Guatemala and
southeastern Mexico during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
