Satellite images and radar imagery from Mexico indicate that the broad area of low pressure located over the extreme southwestern Gulf of Mexico has not become better organized over the past few hours.

However, environmental conditions appear favorable for development and a tropical depression could form during the next day or so before the system moves inland. There is a high chance (60 percent) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves northwestward at 5 to 10 mph.
