+ Effects & Hazards: TD 04W's (CALOY) circulation slightly disorganized over the South China Sea. Its outer (feeder) bands continues to affect Zambales & Western Pangasinan. Light to moderate winds (10-30 kph) w/ occasional rains is likely along the outer bands. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 100 mm (light, moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along the outer and inner rainbands...
+ Current ITCZ Intensity: STRONG >> Mostly cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rains w/ thunderstorms can be expected along the following affected areas: SOUTHERN LUZON, BICOL, QUEZON, MINDORO, REST OF VISAYAS AND MINDANAO. Possible landslides, mudslides, mudflows (lahars) and life-threatening flash floods are likely to occur along steep mountain/volcanic slopes, river banks, low-lying & flood-prone areas of the affected 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!]

*ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS POORLY ORGANIZED CONVECTIVE BANDS AROUND THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER AS THE SYSTEM CAME OFFSHORE FROM LUZON JUST NORTH
OF SUBIC BAY, INTO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. A WEAKER SYSTEM THAN
PREVIOUSLY FORECAST, TD 04W TRACKED ON A MORE WESTWARD DIRECTION
STEERED BY THE LOW LEVEL ENVIRONMENTAL FLOW (AROUND 700 MB). THE
CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND EXTRAPOLATED
FROM A 181330Z TRMM MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH POOR CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW AND RJTD OF T1.5 TO
T2.0 AND EXTRAPOLATED FROM NEARBY SHIP OBSERVATIONS AND FROM THE
181800Z OBSERVATION FROM SUBIC. THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO TRACK ON A
MORE NORTHWESTWARD PATTERN AS IT INTENSIFIES AND GETS STEERED BY A
LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE ANCHORED IN THE NORTHWEST
PACIFIC. TD 04W WILL PEAK AT 55 KNOTS BEFORE IT MAKES LANDFALL NEAR
HONG-KONG AROUND TAU 72. THE AVAILABLE NUMERIC GUIDANCE ARE IN FAIR
AGREEMENT WITH THIS TRACK FORECAST WITH GFS AS THE SOLE OUTLIER RIGHT
OF THE ENVELOPE AND EGRR JUST TO THE LEFT OF THE PACK. THIS TRACK
FORECAST IS TO THE LEFT OF CONSENSUS TO COMPENSATE FOR GFS
HAVING A SEVERE UNLIKELY PULL TO THE RIGHT...(more)
