However, there’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 01W…which is located approximately 305 NM east of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Here’s a NOAA 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 shows fragmented cloud banding and deep flaring convection, north of a symmetric low level circulation.

Upper level analysis reveals good poleward diffluent outflow, and light to moderately strong 15-20 knot wind shear…surrounded by higher values in all quadrants.

Maximum sustained winds are estimated to be 15-20 knots.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is low
