For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:
A large area of disturbed weather associated with a broad area of
low pressure has formed about 1300 miles southwest of the southern
tip of the Baja California peninsula. The low is forecast to move
slowly northward over the next few days and could acquire some
tropical or subtropical characteristics during that time.
Environmental conditions are expected to become unfavorable for
further development by early next week. Regardless of tropical or
subtropical cyclone development, the low will likely produce
gale-force winds over the weekend. Additional information on this
system can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National
Weather Service. The next Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this
system will be issued by 11 AM PST Friday, or earlier, if necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
