Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.
16W's developing circulation remains partially exposed, with its rain-cloud convection located south of its center. Below are the summary of the cyclone's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:
CENTRAL DENSE OVERCAST (CDO) - None.
DEVELOPING RAINBANDS - still weak and disorganized.
24-HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 150 mm (light to heavy rain) can be expected along the developing rainbands...with isolated amounts of up to 250 mm (heavy) near the center of 16W [view current NOAA's eTRaP graphic].
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - None.

*TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 16W, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 455 NM NORTH OF
YAP, HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD AT 08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX
HOURS. UPPER LEVEL TROUGHING HAS DEEPENED TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE
SYSTEM AND HAS STALLED ORGRANIZATION WHILE DAMPENING DEEP
CONVECTION. THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS LESS OBVIOUS
IN MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY FROM SIX HOURS AGO. HOWEVER, A
222151Z SSMIS 37H MICROWAVE IMAGE INDICATES THAT A LLCC PERISTS TO
THE NORTH OF RAPIDLY DISSOLVING CENTRAL CONVECTION. IT ALSO APPEARS
THAT THE LLCC MAY BE BROADENING, WHICH WOULD IMPLY SHORT TERM
WEAKENING. UPPER LEVEL CONDITIONS WILL BE SLOW TO IMPROVE, BUT ONCE
THEY DO IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE DISTURBANCE WILL MODESTLY INTENSIFY
TO TROPICAL STORM STRENGTH, ASSUMING THE LLCC DOES NOT DISSIPATE ALL
TOGETHER. MODEL GUIDANCE HAS IMPROVED WITH NEARLY ALL THE TRACKERS
SUGGESTING RECURVATURE TOWARDS THE BASE OF A DEEP LAYER TROUGH THAT
WILL PASS TO THE NORTH AROUND TAU 72. THE FORECAST HAS BEEN
SHARPENED POLEWARD TO ACCOUNT FOR BETTER AGREEMENT AMONG
