As of Saturday afternoon, EDT, there are no tropical cyclones in the western North Pacific Ocean; however, we are monitoring an area of low pressure over 1,000 miles east of Guam and the Mariana Islands.

Later in the weekend and early next week, this area of low pressure is expected to develop into an organized tropical cyclone as it moves westward toward Guam and the Mariana Islands. This system could begin to impact the islands on Wednesday as a tropical storm or typhoon.
