Tropical Depression Yagi Update #10 [FINAL]

Issued (00 UTC) 8am PhT 061313

Yagi has weakened overnight and is now down to a Tropical Depression. The system is also nearing the completion of the extra-tropical transition. TD Yagi was last located approximately 380km south of Tokyo, Japan. Maximum sustained winds are down to 45kph with gusts of up to 65kph. TD Yagi is moving east northeastward at 20kph.

Tropical Depression Yagi is currently moving near the Izu Islands (just south of Honshu). Winds of up to 45kph, along with light rains, have been impacting the area since last night. However, no significant impacts are expected from this storm. Conditions should improve later today as Yagi continues to pull away to the northeast.

This is our final update on Tropical Depression Yagi. Elsewhere in the basin, a low pressure area was spotted in the South China Sea. Invest 99W has a weak and somewhat elongated low-level center. Right now, the chances of development are still low. However, some computer models suggest development in the next 3 days.

Whether or not 99W develops, it will still enhance the monsoonal flow in the region which will continue to bring light to moderate rains across the Philippines.
