There is however an area of disturbed weather, being referred to as Invest 93P, in the South Pacific Ocean, circled in orange above…that has a medium chance of developing

This tropical disturbance was located about 55 NM northwest of Bora Bora, here’s a satellite image…and a near real time wind profile – and what the computer models are showing

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery depicts a consolidating, partially exposed low level circulation center, with deep convection persisting over the southeast quadrant.

In addition, images show formative cloud banding wrapping into an elongated but defined low level center. Another image shows a symmetric circulation with 25-30 knot winds elsewhere.

Upper level analysis shows a favorable environment, with low 10-15 knot wind shear, and improving outflow.

Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 25-30 knots.


The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is medium
