Monsoonal Low Developing This Week

There is an increasing chance of tropical development west of the Philippines this week into the weekend. Most signs point towards a monsoonal gyre of sorts but there is still plenty of time to watch it. The very least an increase in rainfall from Luzon to Hainan to Northern Vietnam is in the forecast.

Choi-wan / Dante moves north towards Taiwan and Southern Japan.

Dante / Choi-wan ( the most aggravating storm in recent memory) continues to drift north today around Luzon. Really missing out on the Cagayan valley where they need the rain.

Choi-wan is now moving north as a really sad tropical storm but a storm none the less. The big thing with this now is it will wrap up with the rainy season front in SE China and help kick off some decent rainfall in Taiwan, some areas over 100-200mm is possible. Taiwan needs the rain too as they have been suffering from drought recently

Meanwhile there is another low east of the Philippines worth watching, but at this time I do not expect anything to develop out of it.

Tropical Storm Dante / Choi-wan Impacting the Philippines

Choi-wan / Dante continues to drift west today meaning the west coast of Luzon and Mindoro will get some of the heaviest rain in the next 24hrs. This includes Manila where Signal Force 2 and 1 has been raised. (This is basically a TS watch / Warning. ) In those Urban areas be ready for the possibility of some urban flooding in poor drainage areas as well as river level rises.

Signal force 1 and 2 has been issued along the west coast.

Photos out of Leyte which has already experienced heavy rains and flooding in connection with Typhoon #DantePH . Due to the slow nature of the storm these impacts are to be expected over the next few days.

Persistent rainfall from #Dante / Choi-wan in Mindanao is also causing problems with landslides being reported in Davao De Oro. These photos shared by Aihk Kenneth Barona.

Developing Tropical Depressions East of the Philippines

We have two areas to watch this weekend in the tropics, one currently bringing passing storms to Palau and another impacting small islands south east of Guam. Guidance develops both storms yet are different on where exactly to take them. Regardless an increase in rainfall for the Philippines and Guam is in the forecast.

For now though we need to monitor this closely, if you have any questions let me know on our Facebook or youtube page.
