Tropical-Pacific weather forecast for Saturday, April 9, 2022
There is no discussion of the Eastern Pacific Tropics at this time.
Tropical Storm Malakas well south of Guam
On Saturday morning EDT, Tropical Storm Malakas, designated by the Japan Meteorological Agency, is well centered south of Guam. The storm is expected to gradually strengthen as it follows
northwesterly over the southeast Philippine Sea over the next few days. Malakas is the first named storm of the year in the basin. The storm is expected to pass between Guam and the Yap Islands
later in the weekend, so there should be minimal threat to land; however, Guam could experience heavy rain and gusty winds from the weekend through Monday.
A tropical depression, as designated by the Japan Meteorological Agency, lies just east of the southern Philippines and will continue to bring increased rainfall to parts of the central and southern parts.
Philippines over the next few days as it slowly drifts. There is a chance it will become a nominal tropical storm within the next two to three days.
A weak tropical rainstorm is also forming over the southern South China Sea and is unlikely to strengthen as it drifts north over the next few days. Either way, increased rains are expected across
Borneo and finally Palawan this weekend.
No new information for this period.
