Tricky tropical depressions in the works?

Good morning from the Western Pacific Weather team.

On this October 31 (Halloween, All Hallows Eve, etc.), it’s more treat than trick in terms of the Western Pacific weather. We do have a tropical depression out near the Indochina Peninsula, and we will have to watch out for that. It could bring some serious rainfall for southern Vietnam and Cambodia over the next couple of days. There’s also a little low out east of the Philippines near Mindanao. It is expected to develop into a tropical depression over the next couple of days, and that will bring some significant rain into the southern areas of the nation.

Otherwise, we’re looking at a relatively calm weather pattern over the Western Pacific. High pressure rules over China, while the remnants of Saola roar into the eastern regions of Russia.

So seriously… not too many tricks on this Tuesday.
