The storm is forecast to make landfall somewhere between southeastern Nicaragua or northeastern Costa Rica on Friday. It ill race across Central America and into the Pacific by Saturday morning.

Two other disturbances are being watched with one in the Gulf of Mexico and the other in the Atlantic. 

The low-pressure system over the western Gulf of Mexico is known as Invest 95-L and it is poorly disorganized as it slowly moves towards Texas southern coast.
