The Eastern Pacific Basin remains free of any organized tropical system, but AccuWeather meteorologists are keeping an eye on a couple disturbances that may develop over the next several days.
The first is an area of low pressure around 1,200 miles east-southeast of the Hawaiian Islands. This system will slowly drift west-northwest over the next several days, and there is a chance for further development as it moves into a zone of warm waters and low wind shear. Both the American and European global models show this system as an organized tropical cyclone to the southeast of Hawaii later next week.
The second area that is being monitored is an area of showers and thunderstorms about 1,400 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This feature may develop further early next week as it tracks west-northwest.
