    The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
    Storm Hilda, located more than 1100 miles west of the southern tip
    of the Baja California peninsula.

    1. Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with the remnant low
    pressure system of Tropical Depression Nine-E, located more than
    1600 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California
    peninsula, has continued to become better organized during the past
    several hours. If this development trend continues, tropical
    cyclone advisories will be initiated on this system later today.
    Environmental conditions appear to be conducive for additonal
    development over the next few days while the system moves
    northwestward at 5 to 10 mph. By late Thursday, further development
    is not expected as the system is forecast to move over cooler
    waters. For additional information on this system see High Seas
    Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...near 100 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...near 100 percent.

    2. An area of low pressure is expected to develop a few hundred miles
    south of the southern coast of Mexico late this week. Environmental
    conditions are forecast to be conducive for some gradual development
    this weekend while the system moves west-northwestward at 10 to 15
    mph, parallel to and offshore the coast of southwestern Mexico.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

    High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, can be

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    1. A small low pressure area with limited shower and thunderstorm
    activity is meandering over or near the Cabo Verde Islands.
    Significant development of this system is not expected during the
    next day or so due to unfavorable environmental conditions. However,
    locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be possible over
    portions of the Cabo Verde Islands through today while the system
    moves little. Additional information on the low can be found in high
    seas forecasts issued by Meteo-France.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...near 0 percent.

    2. A tropical wave located over the central tropical Atlantic is
    producing a broad area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
    Environmental conditions are expected to be marginally conducive for
    some slow development east of the Lesser Antilles by Sunday and into
    early next week while the disturbance moves west-northwestward at 10
    to 15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

    3. A tropical wave is forecast to move off of the west coast of Africa
    by late Thursday. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive
    for gradual development thereafter over the far eastern tropical
    Atlantic through the weekend into early next week while the system
    moves generally westward at about 15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

    Additional information on the low pressure system near the Cabo
