West Pacific Typhoon & Tropical Storm Center

Tracking low pressure southwest of Chuuk

1/15/2019 3:08:07 PM

As of Tuesday afternoon, EST, an area of tropical low pressure was moving to the west and is centered roughly 190 miles to the south-southwest of Chuuk. This low remains a loosely organized system, though is still producing several areas of showers and thunderstorms.

This low will move into an area more favorable for development later this week and may develop into a tropical depression or storm as it passes near Palau late in the week and then nears the Philippines by the weekend.
