|Current Status and Outlook||Tropical Disturbance (LPA) 94W has been struggling to develop during the past 24 hours, and has started moving north-northwestward across Yap State…expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by late Saturday or early Sunday (June 22-23). The majority of the Global Typhoon Forecast Models are having difficulty in forecasting the strength of this LPA, therefore, there is high uncertainty as to what strength this system will achieve in the coming days.
This LPA is still far to directly affect any part of the country. However, there is still a 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.
|Where is LPA 94W?||As of 2:00 PM PhT today, June 21…0600 GMT. The center was located approaching the island of Yap [near 9.0°N 138.8°E], about 414 km of PAR or 1,462 km east of Mati City, Davao Oriental.|
|How strong is it?||Maximum Sustained Winds (10-min avg): 35 kph near the center…gustiness: 45 kph.|
|Past Movement (06 hrs)||North-Northwest Slowly, towards East Philippine Sea.|
