Watching a Disturbance Southwest of Guam

As of Sunday morning, EDT, an area of low pressure was centered near 10.4 degrees north and 138.5 degrees east or about 65 miles north-northeast of the island of Yap. Latest satellite imagery shows an area of flaring convection wrapping around a weak low level circulation. This low is forecast to move slowly westward over the next few days and will continue to be closely monitored for possible further development. This system is forecast to approach the Philippines by the middle of the upcoming week bringing showers and thunderstorms to the northern half of the Philippines.
