As of 7 a.m., the disturbance has a 10 percent chance (low) of developing into a tropical system within five days. It has a near 0 percent chance within 48 hours.

The National Hurricane Center said showers and thunderstorms associated with the disturbance remain unorganized. On Thursday morning, they were over the Yucatan peninsula and were expected to move west over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico through Saturday.

Forecasters said development, if any, would be slow because of strong upper-level winds.
