Upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for development, and this area of disturbed weather is likely to consolidate and become a tropical depression on Sunday or Monday while it moves nearly parallel to the southwest coast of Mexico.

Regardless of development, gusty winds and heavy rains causing flash floods and mud slides are expected in coastal portions of the Mexican states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Michoacan, Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit this weekend into early next week.

Interests in these areas and Baja California Sur should monitor the progress of this disturbance.
