    Tropical Weather Outlook
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
    500 PM PDT Sun Aug 12 2018

    For the eastern North Pacific...east of 140 degrees west longitude:

    Showers and thunderstorms are limited in association with a tropical
    wave located about 850 miles south of the southern tip of the Baja
    California peninsula. Environmental conditions are expected to
    become more conducive for development by the middle or latter part
    of the week, and a tropical depression could form around that time
    while the disturbance moves westward at 10 to 15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

    A trough of low pressure located about 1000 miles southwest of the
    southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing
    disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some slow development of
    this system is possible during the next couple of days before
    upper-level winds become unfavorable. This system is expected to
    move westward at 10 to 15 mph during the next few days.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.
