THE AREA OF CONVECTION PREVIOUSLY LOCATED NEAR 3.7N
145.9E, IS NOW LOCATED NEAR 3.7N 145.9E, APPROXIMATELY 565NM
SOUTHEAST OF YAP. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY HAS
REVEALED A PARTIALLY EXPOSED LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC)
WITH FLARING DEEP CONVECTION BEING SHEARED TO THE WEST. THE EASTERLY
VERTICAL SHEAR IS CURRENTLY HINDERING DEVELOPMENT OF THE LLCC,
HOWEVER, UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENCE AND WARM SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES
NEAR 29 DEGREES CELSIUS ARE CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT. NVGM
MAINTAINS A WEAK LLCC OVER THE NEXT 4-5 DAYS. GFS SOLUTION IS MORE
AGGRESSIVE, DEVELOPING A TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER THE NEXT 1-2 DAYS.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED SURFACE WINDS ARE ESTIMATED AT 15 TO 20 KNOTS.
