+ Effects & Hazards: TD 04W's (CALOY) circulation continues to become better organized while over the South China Sea. Its outer (feeder) bands is no longer affecting Zambales & Western Pangasinan. 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: MODERATE >> Sunny to mostly cloudy skies with scattered to widespread afternoon or evening rains w/ strong thunderstorms can be expected along the following affected areas: REST OF THE PHILIPPINES. 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 MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT DEEP CONVECTION HAS WANED DIURNALLY WITH DISORGANIZED
BURSTS OF DEEP CONVECTION OVER THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CONTINUES TO DEPICT GOOD
OUTFLOW WITH POLEWARD OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY UPPER-LEVEL LOWS NEAR
TAIWAN AND OKINAWA. THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION
BASED ON A 190128Z ASCAT IMAGE INDICATING AN ELONGATED BUT DEFINED
LLCC. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 30 KNOTS IS BASED ON THE ASCAT DATA
ALONG WITH DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 25 TO 30 KNOTS FROM PGTW,
KNES AND RJTD. TD 04W IS TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY
OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE WHICH EXTENDS OVER
TAIWAN. TD 04W IS FORECAST TO TURN NORTHWESTWARD TO NORTH-
NORTHWESTWARD IN THE NEXT 12 TO 24 HOURS, AND IS EXPECTED TO MAKE
LANDFALL NEAR HONG KONG. THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY IN
EXACT TRACK AND LANDFALL LOCATION WITH ABOUT A 280 NM SPREAD IN
MODEL GUIDANCE AT TAU 72. JGSM IS THE WESTERN-MOST OUTLIER AND
INDICATES LANDFALL NORTH OF HAINAN ISLAND WHILE GFS IS THE EASTERN-
MOST OUTLIER AND SHOWS LANDFALL JUST EAST OF HONG KONG. THE OFFICIAL
FORECAST IS POSITIONED SLIGHTLY LEFT OF THE MODEL CONSENSUS TO
ACCOUNT FOR THE EXCESSIVE NORTHWARD TRACK OF GFS. THE SYSTEM IS
FORECAST TO INTENSIFY SLOWLY THROUGH TAU 24 AS IT CONSOLIDATES THEN
SHOULD REACH A PEAK INTENSITY OF 55 KNOTS BY TAU 48....(more)
