New Tropical Depression forms near the Philippines while continued showers affect SE China

In today’s Worldwide Tropical Outlook, we’re still monitoring the tropical disturbance (Invest 90W) E of Hainan Province in China which is spreading heavy showers and thunderstorms across portions of northern Vietnam and southeastern China.  (Starts at 11:38 in the video below)

The real story for the Western Pacific is a newly-formed tropical depression southeast of Mindanao.  Initial model runs suggest a northerly track toward Japan over the next few days, but the cyclone appears to pose little threat to significant strengthening.  Once PAGASA coins the system as a tropical depression, it will be named Jolina.  The next JMA-name will be Jebi, which will be issued once the cyclone reaches tropical storm-strength.

  1. That depression didn’t last long. The 12Z JMA Warning and Summary downgraded the area to a stationary low pressure area approximately 495 km east of Butuan City, Philippines
