Officials Monitor Tropical Disturbance Near Chuuk; Development Possible as it Moves Toward Marianas

The following is news from Guam Homeland Security:


The National Weather Service (NWS) Guam Weather Forecast Office continues to monitor a tropical disturbance just southeast of Chuuk. “Invest Area 94W” is currently unorganized with a broad circulation located near 6 degrees north latitude and 153 degrees east longitude. It is expected to organize over the next 36 hours and it is in a favorable location for further development, as it tracks west-northwestward toward Guam. 
 
There is a possibility of development into a tropical cyclone that passes near the Marianas next week. However, 94W remains disorganized and the rate and timing of development remains uncertain. Regardless of this uncertainty, 94W is expected to bring a wetter pattern to the region Tuesday and Tuesday night with numerous to scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also possible Wednesday and Wednesday night. 
 
While there is still uncertainty as to what the impacts will be to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, the community is reminded to practice caution.
