Track of Low Pressure System

Shower and thunderstorm activity has become a little more concentrated and slightly better organized in association with a broad area of low pressure centered about 400 miles southeast of Acapulco, Mexico.

Environmental conditions are forecast to be marginally conducive for the development of this disturbance, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or two. This system has a medium chance (50 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
