The weather service says at 2pm on Friday local time, Tropical Depression 16W was over 571 kilometres east-southeast of Saipan, about 579 kilometres east-southeast of Tinian and Rota, and about 611 kilometres east of Guam.
 
Tropical Depression 16W continues to move west-northwest at 12 kilometres per hour with maximum sustained winds are currently at 48 kilometres per hour.
 
A tropical storm watch means damaging winds of 62 kilometres per hour or stronger are possible within the next 48 hours.
 
CNMI’s Saipan, which is still reeling from a direct hit by Typhoon Soudelor, was placed under a typhoon watch, which means damaging winds of 119 kilometres per hour or stronger are possible within 48 hours.

Meteorologist Brandon Aydlett told the Pacific Daily News that the depression is expected to evolve into a typhoon late Sunday as it passes north of Saipan.
 
Mr Adylett says the winds could be pretty damaging for the CNMI who are still recovering from typhoon Souldelor.
 
He says throughout this week, the tropical depression has been accompanied by a second weather formation that developed over Majuro in the Marshall Islands.
 
The US Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center has issued tropical cyclone formation alerts for both systems.
