However, there’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 98W…which is located approximately 160 NM west of Koror, Palau

Here’s a satellite image of this area of disturbed weather…along with what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts flaring disorganized convection throughout a very broad low level circulation center.

Upper level analysis shows that conditions in the area are marginally favorable, with easterly diffluent flow and low wind shear…while sea water temperatures are warm.

Global models indicate a west-northwestward track towards the Philippines…with development possible with time.

Maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 10-15 knots.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours continues to be low
