+ Forecast Outlook: LUPIT's forecast has changed...now gearing towards the Alternate Forecast Scenario...expected to drift slowly towards the north for the next 24 hours. The 2 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows LUPIT recurving to the NNE or NE slowly in the direction of Okinawa-Ryukyu Islands, as the steering high pressure ridge to its right becomes the dominant factor of pushing LUPIT poleward. The core shall be about 185 km. to the south of Okinawa, Japan on Wed Oct 28th as weakend tropical storm with winds of only 85 kph. 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 conditions must be considered.
+ Effects: LUPIT's circulation has continued to weaken as strong dry air from the west affects the system. The core remains at sea, just east of Basco with its inner rainbands spreading across Batanes, Calayan Island and Cagayan. Light to moderate rains w/ tropical storm force winds not exceeding 85 kph can be expected along these bands. While the outer rainbands continues to affect the rest of Northern Luzon - where overcast skies along w/ light passing rains & gale-force winds not exceeding 60 kph can be expected. 24-hr total rainfall amounts of 25 to 200 mm (moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along its rainbands...
