+ Forecast Outlook: NIDA's exposed, low-level center (1,000-15,000 feet), devoid of cloud convection is expected to continue moving NW into the Northern Philippine Sea in the next 12 hours and dissipate. 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: N/A. 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 of NIDA. Click here to view the latest NOAA's eTRaP graphic on the storm's rainfall amount.
+ Current NE Monsoon Intensity: MODERATE >> Mostly cloudy skies with passing occasional rains can be expected along the following affected areas: LUZON, BICOL REGION, MASBATE AND NORTHERN VISAYAS. Light to moderate cool northeasterly winds (not in excess of 40 kph) can be expected on these areas.
+ Tropical Cyclone Watch:
Tropical Disturbance 97W (LPA) has started losing convection during the past 6 hours...currently located near lat 15.5N lon 141.9E...or about 385 km NW of Guam...with 1-min maximum sustained winds of 40 kph near the center...moving North @ 17 kph. This system may develop into a Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 hours. Watch out for a separate page on this disturbance if it becomes a Tropical Cyclone.
[Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, effects, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!]

*ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A FULLY EXPOSED
LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH NO DEEP CONVECTION. IMAGERY
AND SURFACE OBSERVATIONS INDICATE COOL DRY AIR ADVECTION INTO THE
PERIPHERY OF THE SYSTEM. BASED ON THE RAPIDLY WEAKENING LLCC AND
INFLUX OF COOLER DRIER AIR, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE WITHIN
12 TO 24 HOURS AS IT DRIFTS SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD. NUMERICAL GUIDANCE
GENERALLY INDICATES A SOUTHEASTWARD TRACK THROUGH THROUGH 24 HOURS,
HOWEVER, RECENT IMAGERY AS WELL AS LOW LEVEL FLOW, SUPPORT A SLOW
WESTWARD TRACK. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE
JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVMARFCSTCEN)
BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.
