CORRECTED TYPO

...DEVELOPING TROPICAL DISTURBANCE MAY THREATEN THE MARIANAS IN A
FEW DAYS...

A DEVELOPING TROPICAL DISTURBANCE CENTERED JUST NORTH OF KOSRAE NEAR
LATITUDE 6 DEGREES NORTH AND LONGITUDE 163 DEGREES EAST IS NOW THE
SUBJECT OF A TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT FROM THE JOINT TYPHOON
WARNING CENTER...AND WILL LIKELY BECOME A TROPICAL DEPRESSION
TONIGHT OR FRIDAY.

LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT THIS DISTURBANCE IS LIKELY TO
MOVE TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AND DEVELOP OVER THE NEXT FEW
DAYS...ON A TRACK THAT WOULD BRING IT NEAR OR JUST NORTH OF THE
MARIANAS LATE SUNDAY OR MONDAY AS A TROPICAL STORM OR POSSIBLY A
TYPHOON.

THERE IS STILL A HIGH DEGREE OF UNCERTAINTY REGARDING THE EXACT
TRACK AND INTENSITY OF THIS SYSTEM AS IT DEVELOPS...AND TO WHAT
EXTENT IT MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE MARIANA ISLANDS. IN ANY
CASE...RESIDENTS OF THE MARIANA ISLANDS SHOULD STAY INFORMED ON THIS
DEVELOPING WEATHER SITUATION. KEEP ABREAST OF THE LATEST FORECASTS
AND LISTEN FOR ANY STATEMENTS OR WARNINGS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE AND YOUR LOCAL HOMELAND SECURITY OR EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
OFFICE.
