Philippines to Japan on alert for a tropical cyclone


An area of showers and thunderstorms in the Philippine Sea could potentially become a tropical cyclone, reports Accuweather.

This area of concern has been bringing daily showers and thunderstorms to Palau, Yap and the Caroline Islands this week, but the threat will shift north-westward in the coming days.

While Palau and Yap will continue to be at risk of gusty showers and thunderstorms into this weekend, there is a risk of worsening conditions next week.

Locations from the northern Philippines to Taiwan, South Korea and Japan may be at risk.

The West Pacific's next tropical storm or typhoon will be named Sepat.
