8:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, Japan time: For the moment, it doesn’t appear as if a new tropical disturbance, developing about 320 miles east-southeast of Palau and 1,600 miles south-southeast of Okinawa, will develop into anything significant, forecasters at the National Weather Service on Guam said Tuesday.

94W Invest has been on the grid for the last couple of days, sitting over warm waters just north of Yap and east of Mindanao in the southern Philippines and crawling slowly north.

NWS officials and Joint Typhoon Warning Center bulletins say that 94W is a broad system moving very slowly northward and not forecast to develop into anything significant at the moment.
