Track of Low Pressure Area

A low pressure system located about 180 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, continues to produce disorganized shower activity.

Although upper-level winds are not particularly favorable, some slow development of this low is still possible during the next couple of days.

There is a low chance (20 percent) of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly westward to west- northwestward.
