DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 PM ChST...0600 UTC...the poorly defined center of Tropical Depression 27W was located near latitude 9.2 degrees North and longitude 147.0 degrees East...moving west-northwest at 5 mph. Tropical Depression 27W is expected to turn toward the northwest tonight through Wednesday with an increase in forward speed. This forecast track still indicates Tropical Depression 27W passing southwest of Guam on Tuesday.
Maximum sustained winds remain at 35 mph. Tropical Depression 27W is not expected to significantly intensify tonight, but some gradual intensification is expected Tuesday and Wednesday.
There is still much uncertainty on how close 27W will pass to Guam, Rota or locations in Chuuk and Yap States so this system should still be closely watched for any changes in motion and intensity.
NEXT ADVISORY ------------- The next scheduled advisory will be issued by the National Weather Service at 800 PM this evening, followed by an intermediate advisory at 1100 PM.
