Track of Low Pressure Area

The area of showers and thunderstorms centered about 430 miles south of Hilo, Hawaii, has shown less overall organization over the past several hours.

The coverage and intensity of the thunderstorms within this area has weakened over the past 6 hours with most of the deep convection well removed from the low level center to the east and northeast.

Slow development of this feature is possible as it continues moving slowly toward the west at about 10 mph during the next couple of days. There is a medium chance, 30 percent, of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
