It’s Getting Near Typhoon Season

The typhoon season is near. This season’s first suspect area (INVEST 95W) in the Northern Hemisphere is currently located near Palau. Fortunately it is far south of us. This serves as reminder though that as storms form north of the equator the greater the chance of a storm is to approaching our area. Below is the latest report on the latest suspect area.

  1. WESTERN NORTH PACIFIC AREA (180 TO MALAY PENINSULA):
    A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
    B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY:
    (1) AN AREA OF CONVECTION (INVEST 95W) PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR
    4.5N 137.8E IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 5.2N 136.2E, APPROXIMATELY 164 NM
    SOUTHEAST OF PALAU. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A
    070436Z 89GHZ AMSR2 IMAGE DEPICT A WEAK, BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
    WITH MINIMAL CONVECTION. INVEST 95W IS IN A FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT
    FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT WITH LOW (5-10 KTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR,
    GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW ALOFT AND WARM (28-30C) SEA SURFACE
    TEMPERATURES. DESPITE THIS FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT, GLOBAL MODELS ARE
    IN AGREEMENT THAT 95W WILL SLOWLY CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARD WITH
    MINIMAL INTENSIFICATION. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE
    ESTIMATED AT 10 TO 15 KNOTS. MINIMUM SEA LEVEL PRESSURE IS ESTIMATED
    TO BE NEAR 1010 MB. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
    SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS REMAINS LOW.
    (2) NO OTHER SUSPECT AREAS.
    C. SUBTROPICAL SYSTEM SUMMARY: NONE.
  2. SOUTH PACIFIC AREA (WEST COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA TO 135 EAST):
    A. TROPICAL CYCLONE SUMMARY: NONE.
    B. TROPICAL DISTURBANCE SUMMARY: NONE.
    C. SUBTROPICAL SYSTEM SUMMARY: NONE.
