DISCUSSION: Just after the recent Category 1 Hurricane Earl made landfall in the Eastern Yucatán Peninsula (located in Eastern Mexico) very early this morning, things quickly ramped up on the other side of the world today. More specifically, as a relatively new Monsoon Depression continued to become increasingly more organized, it was officially upgraded to Tropical Storm Omais! Though this storm is predominantly expected to remain over the warm waters of the Western Pacific Ocean, there is still a marginal longer-term threat for the potential impacts to parts of extreme Southern and Eastern Japan within 4 to 5 days! However, since that estimated forecast position is more than 72 hours away, this estimated forecast position has a high-degree of uncertainty associated with it!
