DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 AM ChST...1800 UTC...the center of Tropical Depression 27W was located near latitude 9.0 degrees North and longitude 147.8 degrees East...moving east-northeast at 5 mph. Tropical Depression 27W is expected to eventually turn back to the west later today and continue toward northwest through Tuesday. This forecast track still anticipates Tropical Depression 27W passing south of Guam on Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds remain at 35 mph. Tropical Depression 27W is not expected to significantly intensify today, but some gradual intensification is expected Tuesday or Wednesday.
There is still much uncertainty on how close 27W will pass to Guam or locations in Chuuk State so this system should still be closely watched for any changes in motion or intensity.
