However, there’s a tropical disturbance in the western Pacific, which is being referred to as Invest 99W…located approximately 270 NM northeast of Palau

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

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite images show a rapidly consolidating low level circulation, with deep convection located over the center, and to the east of the system.

The disturbance is currently located in an area of good upper level divergence, low 5-10 knot wind shear, and over very warm sea surface temperatures.

Global models agree that the disturbance will track to the northwest over the next several days, although with very minimal development.

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 medium
