Very Early Look Invest 94W (23rd of August 2019)

Here is a very early look at invest 94W way out in the Marshal islands and still an un-organized area of cloud cover. None the less it is in an area of favorable development and model guidance from ECMWF, GFS and CMC has been persistent on developing a storm system in the Philippine sea this upcoming week. With that said I scoped out where a storm could possible go here based on the current atmospheric setup in place. That being the Westpac High located north of Guam, the monsoonal trough pushing in out of China and the general background easterlies in the tropics.

Thus those from Okinawa, to Taiwan to the Philippines should keep an eye out in the tropics but that is about it at this time. *IMPORTANT NOTE* Remember what happened with ”Sarah” and how there were social media post saying it would be a big typhoon in the central Philippines And then nothing of the sort took place. Keep that in mind when sharing information on social media on these storms. Even when you are reading my post I always suggest checking a second source and of course with JMA, JTWC and PAGASA.
