A new Tropical Depression (15W) has formed far to the East of the Visayas today. This system is poised to enter the Philippine AoR late today or early tomorrow and will be locally named "LUIS". The JTWC in Hawaii has released its third warning on the system, while PAGASA-Manila has included in its advisories.
The storm has been located 390 km North-Northwest of Yap Island, and is forecast to track into the North Philippine Sea towards Northern Luzon by early next week.
JMA-Tokyo still considers the system a LPA.
Interests in Luzon and Taiwan should monitor this system as it continues to develop.
