In late-June, an area of disturbed weather persisted to the east of the Philippines, accompanied by a low-pressure area. At 1200 UTC on June 26, the system was designed as Invest 99W by the JTWC. Initially tracking southward, the invest-disturbance moved east and then recurved to the west, steadily gaining in organization and intensity.

At 0300 UTC on June 27, the disturbance, situated 520 km (325 mi) east of Surigao, Philippines, became sufficiently organized to be classified as a tropical depression by the PAGASA, and as such the system was given the name Gorio by the same agency. The same day, the system was also classified as a tropical depression by the JMA. Tracking to the northwest under the influence of a subtropical ridge to the northeast, the depression gradually organized, despite being situated in an area of low to moderate wind shear.

At 1200 UTC the following day, the JMA upgraded the depression to tropical storm intensity, naming it Rumbia (06w); the PAGASA upgraded the system three hours later. In Butuan, Philippines, heavy rainfall generated from the nearby storm caused the suspension of elementary and high schools; the floods also submerged rice fields in Buenavista, Agusan del Norte.

The low level circulation center of Tropical Storm Yagi (03W) has lost symmetry and appears elongated in recent multispectral satellite imagery. The system will be closely monitored for signs of regeneration.

Tropical Storm Yagi (03W) Quickly Dissipating – June 13th, 2013

Tropical Storm Yagi (03W) is quickly dissipating while under an unfavorable upper level environment as well as tracking over cool sea surface temperatures (22 degrees Celsius).

An upper level low to the north of the system has moved south amplifying a region of subsidence over the low level circulation center (LLCC). A scatterometry pass indicates 20 knot winds surrounding the fully exposed LLCC.
