500 AM PDT Sun Sep 23 2018

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

A broad area of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles
south of Acapulco, Mexico is producing disorganized showers and
thunderstorms.  Environmental conditions are conducive for
development of this system, and a tropical depression is likely
to form in a few days while it moves west-northwestward well off the
coast of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

An area of low pressure is expected to form over the far western
portion of the eastern North Pacific basin by the middle of the
week.  Some gradual development of this system is possible after
that time while it moves westward toward the central Pacific.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
