Tropical Depression Kirogi

A tropical disturbance formed within a large monsoon trough late on August 2, and the JMA mentioned it as a tropical depression northwest of Wake Island early on the next day.

On August 4, the JTWC issued a TCFA on this subtropical system, and later upgraded the system to a tropical depression late on the same day. On August 5, the JTWC upgraded the system to a tropical storm. Early on August 6, the JMA reported that the system had become extratropical. However, the JMA designated it as a tropical storm with the name Kirogi early on August 8.

Tropical Depression Kirogi (13W), located approximately 745 nm east-southeast of Misawa, Japan, has tracked northwestward at 14 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 15 feet.
