One tropical wave is located about 1,300 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Another area of low pressure is about 2,000 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja. These features are expected to move slowly westward over the next several days. Development is not expected through tonight, but there is some potential for development of either or both of these systems over the weekend or early next week. However, due to their proximity to each other if significant development were to occur it would probably only happen with one of these features. Both are far away from any land areas.
Elsewhere across the East Pacific it is quiet, and no development is likely for at least the next several days.
