The National Hurricane Center in Miami also said Thursday that no tropical cyclones were expected to form in the Eastern Pacific during the next couple of days.

However, forecasters are keeping tabs on a broad area of low pressure that is expected to form this weekend or early next week a file hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico. It has just a 20 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone within five days.
