Western North Pacific
There’s a tropical disturbance, being referred to as Invest 96W, which is located approximately 968 NM east of Tinian, CNMI
Here’s what the computer models are showing
According to the JTWC, upper level analysis reveals a marginal environment with moderate 20 knot north-northwesterly wind shear offsetting good equatorward outflow…and warm sea surface temperatures.
Global models are in good agreement that 96W will continue tracking westward with little to no intensification.
Maximum sustained winds are estimated at 10-15 knots.
The potential for the system to transition into a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 is upgraded to medium.
