There are no active tropical cyclonesSatellite image of this area
There’s a tropical disturbance, being referred to as Invest 99W, which is located approximately 82 NM southeast of Taipei, Taiwan
Here’s what the computer models are showing
According to the JTWC, satellite imagery shows a ragged and fully exposed low level circulation, with flaring deep convection sheared far to the southwest.
Invest 99W is in an unfavorable environment, with strong 30-35 knot wind shear, a northeasterly flow, and warm sea surface temperatures.
Global models are in good agreement that the disturbance will maintain its marginal state at best over the next 24 hours, as it continues to track poleward toward Okinawa before is eventually tracks under stronger westerly flow.
Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 12-18 knots.
The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is downgraded to low.
