Areas of Low Pressure Near Coast of Mexico14.6N 102.4W
Two areas of low pressure can be observed near the coast of Mexico in this image. Closer to the shoreline is a small area of low pressure located about 150 miles south-southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico that is producing a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms and winds to near tropical storm force. However, this disturbance currently lacks a closed surface circulation. This system has a medium chance (30 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours before it merges with the larger low to its south.
This larger low, however, is a patch of showers and thunderstorms that continues to show signs of organization in association with an area of low pressure located about 350 miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development of this system, and it could become a tropical depression during the next day or so as it moves west-northwestward at around 15 mph. This system has a high chance (70 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
