On our Tropical Watch there are now two little tropical disturbances along the ITCZ south by southwest of Baja, moving out into the Pacific. These systems are still given a low chance of development as they move off into the Central Pacific basin. The more westerly system is moving west along 7°N, a little too close to the equator to develop spin. The other is located a few thundered miles behind and slightly further north, neither has any chance of significantly impacting the weather in Baja or mainland Mexico.
