In the Western Pacific, Tropical Depression 9W may become the next typhoon in the wake of once-Super Typhoon Neoguri.
Tropical Storm 9W was upgraded from its tropical depression status early on Friday, but it has recently lost organization and is now a tropical depression once again.
However, it should move into a more conducive environment for strengthening, and may eventually become Typhoon Rammasun.
The system will continue to move westward away from Guam through the weekend and into next week.
If it does indeed hold together, it will be in the vicinity of Luzon, Philippines, on Wednesday or Thursday.
If the storm remains at typhoon strength, locals in the Philippines will need to brace for extreme winds and heavy, torrential rainfall that could lead to mudslides.
Meteorologists in the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center will be monitoring this strengthening storm in anticipation of its possible effects in the Philippines and, eventually, into China.
