Track of Low Pressure System

Cloudiness and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system located about 750 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, have continued to show little change in organization over the past several hours. However, environmental conditions appear to be conducive for this low to become a tropical depression during the next day or so. This system has a high chance (80 percent) of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves westward or west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph.
