Tropical Update

Tropical Depression Nalgae has dissipate earlier this morning as it tracked over Vietnam. It brought moderate rains with amounts running from 50 to 100mm. The remnants of Nalgae could still bring some scattered showers across southeast Indochina (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand) although they will be light.

Invest 90W remains very weak east of Mindanao. JTWC still keeping "LOW" chance and computer models still showing weak development in the coming days.

Invest 91W is located in the South China Sea, southeast of Hainan. It's weak just like 90W and is in an area of low wind shear and cooler sea temperatures. Models are not really picking up on this system yet.

A weak tropical wave is moving just to the east of Luzon. It's disorganized although it does have some pretty strong convective activity. It will likely increase the chances of rain showers particularly along the Eastern portions (Cagayan, Isabela, and Batanes Islands) as well as the Cordillera Regions. This wave is not expected to develop either due to strong wind shear.
