In the Eastern Pacific, there is an area of disturbed weather that is located about 700 miles South-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. This area continues to produce disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity. Slow development of this system is possible during the next couple of days as it moves West-Northwestward at 10-15mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this area a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
