A trough of low pressure located more than 500 miles southwest of 
the coast of Mexico is producing a broad area of disorganized 
showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear 
marginally conducive for some slow development as this system drifts

latter portion of this week.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

South of the Gulf of Tehuantepec:
Another broad area of low pressure is forecast to form in a few days 
several hundred miles south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Thereafter, 
some slow development is possible while this system moves slowly 
westward at 5 to 10 mph.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
