1025 AM PDT Wed May 9 2018

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

1. After a period of increased organization during the past 24 hours, the shower activity associated with the broad area of low pressure located more than 1100 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California  peninsula has markedly decreased. It appears that the disturbance is already  reaching an unfavorable environment, and the chances of tropical cyclone
formation are diminishing. However, a tropical depression could still form  later today before strong upper-level winds become established over the  system on Thursday.

Another Special Tropical Weather Outlook on this  disturbance will be issued by 11 AM PDT on Thursday.
Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.
