Great weather continues to reign over the countries in the Western Pacific Ocean Basin. There are no tropical cyclones active as you could see on this map. It’s pretty clear! 😀
Some scattered light to moderate rain showers could be experienced across different countries in the Western Pacific right now as could be seen in the radar below. There’s no need to panic though as these rains would only be brief.
However, the low pressure area near Mindanao, Philippines still persists (though there’s a low chance of this becoming a significant storm in the next 24 hours).
In addition to the low pressure, a tropical depression has developed at 14.6N 159.6E according to JMA’s weather map. This tropical depression is currently called 95W invest and is forecast to move northwest. Satellite imagery shows a partially exposed and somewhat elongated low level circulation with a weak and disorganized convection flaring up on the southeast edge. According to JTWC, this disturbance has not shown impressive charactersitics of cyclogenesis. It may develop into a weak tropical storm within the next 24 to 48 hours.The current GEFS and GEPS track for 95W Invest show that it would not hit any landmass of any country in the Western Pacific which is of course, good news.
We will keep you posted if there are significant changes to these weather disturbances.
If you’re living within the Western Pacific Ocean and you have some outdoor activity planned, don’t hesitate to push through with it. Take advantage of the awesome weather that we have before us right now. Have fun!
