MINOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION DEVELOPS, NO MAJOR THREAT

Don’t panic, yes JMA is tracking a Tropical Depression east of the Philippines, but it should quickly become absorbed by a passing mid-latitude trough through mid-week without bringing any impact to the Philippines or any major land masses for that matter.

satellite imagery as it pulled north west to the east of the Philippines. Good news is that a trough diving south out of North East Asia through mid-week will hook this low and reel it in to the north.  Most numerical models all agree with this forecast as my personal views on it based on the current synoptic situation.

In short, it looks interesting, and given it is April our ears have perked up towards it, but in the end its just something to look at with no real threat.
