2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, Guam time: A new tropical
depression has formed just southeast of Guam and is forecast to
strengthen into a tropical storm sometime Thursday or Friday, hanging
around Guam long enough to bring yet more heavy rain and high wind, as
if it hasn't had enough of it in the last month. Several advisories and
warnings are posted on Guam's National Weather Service Web page.
26W would be called Francisco if it becomes a named storm, which it
likely will as it heads northwest toward Japan, as forecast by the Joint
Typhoon Warning Center. Too early to tell yet exactly where it will
head, but long-range models are projecting it may follow the same path
as Wipha did, just off Japan's east coast. PST as always will keep a
sharp eyeball on it.
