Tropical Update

Issued (1130 UTC) 730pm PhT 050313

The low pressure area that we've been watching last week struggled to develop and is barely showing any signs of improvement. This system is currently west of Guam and is no longer expected to become a tropical cyclone.

Meanwhile, another low pressure area was spotted--this time in South China Sea. A weak low-level circulation has been observed on Invest 93W. However, just like the other LPA, we're not expecting this disturbance to develop into a cyclone.

As for the Philippines, the tail-end of the cold front will bring light rains and cloudy skies across parts of Northern Luzon. Rest of the country will have partly cloudy skies with occasional chances of rain showers and thunderstorms especially in the afternoon and early evening hours.
