+ Forecast Outlook: The circulation of MIRINAE is expected to weaken further as it moves across the unfavorable atmospheric conditions of the South China Sea. The 2 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows MIRINAE accelerating towards Vietnam and moving out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tomorrow morning. It will make landfall over Vienam on Monday, November 02. Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, so a turn to the left or right of its future track and other possibilities must be considered.
+ Effects: MIRINAE's circulation is now off the west coast of Batangas, bringing strong winds and high surf across the area. Improving weather conditions will be expected across Southern Tagalog and the rest of Southern Luzon including Metro Manila later today as MIRINAE moves into the South China Sea later this afternoon. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 100 mm (moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along the outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of 200 mm (heavy to very heavy rain) near the center of Mirinae.

*MIRINAE HAS BEEN DOWNGRADED TO TROPICAL
STORM STRENGTH. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS TS 23W HAS
MOVED OVER THE EASTERN COAST OF LUZON, WITH A LARGE DECREASE IN
CONVECTION NEAR THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 301710Z
AMSR-E PASS SHOWS TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING CONTINUING TO WRAP INTO THE
NORTHERN PORTION OF THE LLCC, HOWEVER, DEEP CONVECTION ALONG THE
EASTERN HALF OF TS 23W HAS STARTED TO DISSIPATE. LAND INFLUENCES
HAVE WEAKENED THE SYSTEM DRAMATICALLY OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS (FROM
85 TO 55 KNOTS). TS 23W IS STILL TRACKING QUICKLY AS IT MOVES OVER
LUZON, WITH LITTLE DECREASE IN THE TRACK SPEED EXPECTED OVER THE
NEXT 12 HOURS AS IT MOVES INTO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND THE LLCC TRYING TO RE-ORGANIZE AS IT MOVES
BACK OVER WATER WILL LIMIT FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 48
HOURS. AFTER TAU 48, TS 23W IS EXPECTED TO TRACK INTO VIETNAM AND
