Next update: 5:00 PM PhT (09:00 GMT), Friday 21 June 2019
|Current Status and Outlook||After months without any Tropical Cyclone Development, a new Tropical Disturbance (LPA) tagged as “94W” has the potential of becoming a Tropical Cyclone, reaching Tropical Depression (TD) classification within the next 2 to 4 days. Global Typhoon Models already show this system moving into the Philippine Sea by next week, and could become a Typhoon. Watch out for more updates in days to come as we continue to monitor this weather system.
This LPA is still far to directly affect any part of the country. However, there is a strong possibility that it may enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) and bring occasional rains and thunderstorms across the western sections of the country sometime next week.

|How strong is it?||Maximum Sustained Winds (10-min avg): 35 kph near the center.|
|Past Movement (06 hrs)||Quasi-Stationary near the Western Micronesia-Palau Area.|
