In this image we can see an area of convection located in the South China Sea, about 648km (403mi) south of Okinawa Japan.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center reports that the area has a circulation ahead of a deepening mid-latitude trough, and weak banding along the eastern periphery of the low level circulation center.

Upper level analysis indicates an unfavorable enrivonment with strong vertical wind shear north of an anticyclone and under strong southwesterly flow.

The maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 22 to 33km/h (14 to 21mph). The minimum sea level pressure is estimated to be near 1007mb.

The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains poor.
