Tropical depression to threaten Philippines with flooding downpours this week

A new tropical depression has emerged in the western Pacific Ocean, and areas from the Philippines to Japan are at risk.

The Philippine government declared that the tropical disturbance had become Tropical Depression Domeng on Tuesday; however, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has yet to officially name the system.

Once recognized as a tropical storm by the JMA, it will be given the name Maliksi. This name will be used by the rest of the international community when referencing this tropical system.

In the short term, impacts from this developing tropical cyclone will be confined to the Philippines as it tracks east of Visayas and Luzon through Thursday.

The center of the storm will remain well offshore, preventing any damaging winds from impacting the Philippines.

However, there will be a significant risk for showers and thunderstorms capable of producing localized flooding in the coming days.

Localized downpours are expected across Visayas and southern Luzon into Thursday.

Conditions will begin to improve across southern Visayas on Friday; however, widespread heavy rainfall is expected from northwestern Visayas through western Luzon as the tropical system pulls away to the northeast of the country.

In fact, the heaviest rainfall is expected in western Luzon as a southwesterly flow pulls deep tropical moisture into the region after the tropical threat departs.

Manilla could experience flooding on Friday into Sunday as rounds of heavy rain batter the city and surrounding areas.

This heavy rainfall will elevate the risk for flash flooding and mudslides. Travel disruption is also expected.

After departing the Philippines, this tropical system will track east of Taiwan with little or no impact expected.

The storm will then take a north to northeast track just east of the Ryukyu Islands of Japan on Saturday.

As the storm moves east of the islands it will bring only a few gusty showers along with rough surf and rip currents.

While the storm is f orecast to remain east of mainland Japan, interaction with a frontal boundary could result in some local downpours across the country from Sunday into early next week; however, no direct impacts from the storm are expected.
