+ Forecast Outlook: NIDA is expected to drift very slowly West to WNW and continues to weaken within the next 2 days. The 3 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows the system just a Tropical Storm as strong upper-level winds (Vertical Wind Shear) and cold dry air from the surge of NE Monsoon (Amihan) affects the system Thursday morning (8AM Dec 03: 20.6N 136.2E). NIDA will rapidly dissipate along the NE portion of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) while moving WSW slowly on Friday until Saturday (8AM Dec 04: 20.3N 135.4E...8AM Dec 05: 19.9N 134.7E). 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 & Hazards: NIDA is not affecting any major islands at this time. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 150 mm (light to moderate rain) can be expected along the outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of 250 mm (heavy rain) near the center or EyeWall of Nida.

+ Current NE Monsoon Intensity: MODERATE >> Mostly cloudy skies with passing occasional rains and squalls (subasko) can be expected along the following affected areas: EASTERN LUZON, BICOL REGION AND NORTHERN SAMAR. Light to moderate northeasterly winds (not in excess of 40 kph) can be expected on these areas.
[Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, effects, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!]
