Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.
ANALYSIS & FORECAST OUTLOOK (up to 24 hours)*
EFFECTS & HAZARDS
MALAKAS is no longer affecting any major islands or coastal areas as it transforms into an baroclinic system (click here to view the latest NOAA-CIRA's Wind Analysis). 24-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 100 mm (light to moderate rain) can be expected along its outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of up to 200 mm (heavy) near the center of MALAKAS (Click here to view the latest NOAA's eTRaP graphic on the storm's rainfall amount).
CURRENT MONSOON TROUGH (ITCZ) INTENSITY: MODERATE >> Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers, rains & thunderstorms especially in the afternoon or evening can be expected along these following affected areas: CENTRAL & SOUTHERN LUZON, METRO MANILA, BICOL REGION, & VISAYAS. Light to moderate SE, East, NE to Variable winds (not in excess of 20 kph) can be expected today.
Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, extended forecast, effects-hazards, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!

*TYPHOON (TY) 13W (MALAKAS), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 245 NM EAST-
SOUTHEAST OF TOKYO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT 32
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. POSITION IS BASED ON VISUAL IMAGERY
AND A 242334Z ASCAT IMAGE. THE WINDFIELD INDICATED BY THE ASCAT
IMAGE VERIFIES A DRAMATIC SHIFT IN THE WINDFIELD AHEAD OF THE STORM
WHICH SHOWS A DEVELOPING WARM FRONT. THE SYSTEM IS BEGINNING TO TAKE
ON FRONTAL CHARACTERISTICS ON BOTH SIDES AS COOLER DRIER AIR IS
SPILLING OVER HONSHU AND FEEDING INTO THE WESTERN QUADRANT OF THE
SYSTEM. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY AND A 242239Z SSMIS
IMAGE ALSO CONFIRM THAT THE SYSTEM IS RAPIDLY UNDERGOING EXTRA-
TROPICAL TRANSITION. EYE-WALL COLLAPSE IS NOW EVIDENT AND WATER
VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS THAT THE UPPER LEVELS OF THE SYSTEM HAVE COUPLED
WITH THE MID-LATITUDE FLOW. TY MALAKAS' UPPER LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER AND LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER HAVE NOW DE-COUPLED. DEEP
CONVECTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE STORM IS SHEARING TO THE NORTHEAST
AND IS NEARLY COMPLETELY GONE OVER THE EQUATORWARD QUADRANTS OF THE
SYSTEM. AVAILABLE DYNAMIC AIDS ARE IN TIGHT AGREEMENT IN PROJECTING
THE STORM TO MOVE RAPIDLY INTO A BAROCLINIC ZONE EXTENDING FROM
NORTHERN HONSHU INTO THE WESTERN PACIFIC, WHERE IT WILL BECOME A
STORM FORCE MID-LATITUDE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM BY TAU 12. THE FORECAST
IS BASED ON THE CONSENSUS TRACK. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS
SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVMARFCSTCEN). THE
SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION...(more)
