1. Western North Pacific area (180 to Malay Peninsula):
   a. Tropical cyclone summary: none.
   B. Tropical disturbance summary:
      (1) the area of convection (invest 97w) previously located 
near 14.0n 140.6e, is now located near 19.7n 136.5e, approximately 
625 nm southeast of Kadena AB, Okinawa. Animated multispectral 
satellite imagery shows a poorly defined low level circulation (llc) 
with fragmented convection positioned to the northwest of the llc. 
The system is an area of moderate vertical wind shear and limited 
poleward outflow. Global models depict no significant development of 
this disturbance as it tracks northwestward over the next few days. 
Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 10 to 15 knots. 
Minimum sea level pressure is estimated to be near 1010 mb. Because 
the disturbance is disorganized and upper-level conditions are 
generally unfavorable, the potential for the development of a 
significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains low.
      (2) no other suspect areas.
2. South Pacific area (west coast of South America to 135 east):
   a. Tropical cyclone summary: none.
   B. Tropical disturbance summary: none.//
