>Checking the National Hurricane Center (NHC), and the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC), there are no active tropical cyclones for their areas of responsibility at the moment.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) is investigating an area of disturbed weather…circled in orange above. This area is located about 220 NM south of Hong Kong. Satellite imagery continues to show this broad area, which encompasses the entire South China Sea. This area remains ill-defined, as there is a lack of central convection. The thunderstorm activity remains expansive, yet disorganized at the moment. Weather models are developing this system into a weak tropical cyclone that will move northwestward into mainland China over the next 24-36 hours. Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated to be 15-20 knots (17-23 mph). The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) is giving a medium potential for development of this system within 24 hours.

The JTWC is carrying a second area of disturbed weather, this one the remnants from now retired tropical cyclone 03W (Yagi). It is shown above circled in yellow, and is located approximately 270 NM south of Tokyo, Japan. Satellite imagery shows that the remnants have maintained a broad low level circulation center…with persistent shallow convection. Wind estimates show 20 knot (23 mph) winds surrounding this circulation center. Upper air analysis points out an unfavorable environment, and due to these conditions, the potential remains low for this area to development into a tropical cyclone.
