Tropical Storm MEARI StormWatch No. 02

Issued at: 6:30 PM PhT (10:30 GMT) Thursday 03 November 2016
Next Update: Friday Evening, 04 November 2016


Current Status and Outlook

Tropical Disturbance 90W (LPA) which strengthened into a Tropical Depression last night is now Tropical Storm (TS) "MEARI" – a Korean word for a reflection of sound or echo.

The storm is currently drifting very slowly northeastward across the Western Pacific Ocean during the past 6 hours.

Where is the LPA?

As of 5:00 PM PhT today, November 03...0900 GMT. The developing center was located over the sea north of Western Micronesia (near 13.8N 137.3E), about 486 km north-northwest of Colonia, Yap or 1,393 km east of Bicol Region, PHL. 

How strong is it?

Maximum Sustained Winds (10-min avg): 65 kph near the center...Gustiness: 85 kph

Where is it heading?

It was moving Northeast @ 05 kph, towards the open sea of the Western Pacific Ocean.

Forecast Highlights

- MEARI is no longer forecast to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), as most of the Global Typhoon Models are now in good agreement for a Northeasterly (NE) track across the open waters of the Western Pacific Ocean without affecting any land areas.

- Therefore, the threat of Meari for the Philippines has been decreased to Very Low as of the moment.

- StormWatch on TS Meari will continue for the next 24 hours for any changes on the forecast track of the Typhoon Models.
