DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 700 AM ChST...2100 UTC...the center of Tropical Depression 27W was located near latitude 9.3 degrees North and longitude 147.4 degrees East...moving west at 8 mph. Tropical Depression 27W is expected to turn toward the west-northwest today and then northwest through Tuesday with an increase in forward speed. 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 and 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.
NEXT ADVISORY ------------- An intermediate advisory will be issued by the National Weather Service at 1100 AM this morning and the next scheduled advisory will be issued at 200 PM this afternoon.
