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

1. A weak area of low pressure located about 1200 miles west-southwest
of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is producing a
small area of showers and thunderstorms. Development of this
system is unlikely due to strong upper-level winds. This system is
expected to move westward during the next few days.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…10 percent.

2. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms located about 1000 miles
south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California
peninsula are associated with a tropical wave. Environmental
conditions are forecast to become somewhat conducive for development
of this system by the weekend while it moves quickly westward at low
latitudes.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.

3. An area of low pressure is forecast to form late this week several
hundred miles southwest of Mexico. Some slow development of this
system is possible by early next week while it moves westward or
west-northwestward well south of Mexico.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

Description:
The Global Infrared Satellite image shows clouds by their temperature. Red and blue areas indicate cold (high) cloud tops. Infrared (IR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation whose wavelength is longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of terahertz radiation and microwaves. Weather satellites equipped with scanning radiometers produce thermal or infrared images which can then enable a trained analyst to determine cloud heights and types, to calculate land and surface water temperatures, and to locate ocean surface features.
