The area of low pressure (INVEST 93) is developing south of Mexico and it is showing signs that it is attempting to organize into a tropical depression. It is located about 1037 km south-southwest of Manzanillo. Disruptive wind shear (strong winds above the surface) is not strong enough to totally rip apart the low depression area but it is still possible for the system to overcome the wind shear and develop into a tropical depression.
The system is churning westward over the open waters of the eastern Pacific. The formation of a depression in the eastern Pacific would be the first organized tropical system since Hurricane Bud roamed the waters off the southern Mexican coast in late May.
According to JTWC the system is moving northwestward at sped of 7 knots (13 km/h). Winds in the area are estimated to be 15 to 20 knots (28 to 37 km/h). Minimum sea pressure is estimated to be near 1006 MB. JTWC warns that the potential for development of a significant tropical cyclone within 24 hours is high.
