+ Effects & Hazards: TD 98W's (UNNAMED) consolidating circulation will continue to cover much of Central & Northern Luzon - as the system passes by. Its inner (rain) bands is currently spreading across Nueva Ecija, Tarlac & Pangasinan..
+ 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!]

A CONSOLIDATING LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) WITH IMPROVED
CONVECTIVE BANDING. A 180513Z AMSR-E 89H IMAGE INDICATED A WELL-
DEFINED LLCC WITH DEEP CONVECTIVE BANDING WRAPPING FROM THE
SOUTHWEST QUADRANT INTO THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS IMPROVED POLEWARD OUTFLOW INTO A TUTT CELL LOCATED
JUST EAST OF OKINAWA. THERE IS GOOD CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT
POSITION AND 6-HOUR MOTION BASED ON THE AMSR-E AND 172238Z TRMM
IMAGES. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS BASED ON A 180148Z ASCAT IMAGE
INDICATING NUMEROUS 25-30 KNOT UNFLAGGED WINDS AS WELL AS DVORAK
ESTIMATES OF 25-30 KNOTS FROM PGTW AND KNES. TD 04W IS TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) AND IS FORECAST TO TURN NORTHWESTWARD TO NORTH-
NORTHWESTWARD AFTER TAU 12. MODEL VORTEX TRACKERS ARE LIMITED TO
WBAR AND GFS, HOWEVER, UKMO, NOGAPS AND JGSM MODEL FIELDS SUPPORT
THE CURRENT TRACK. TD 04W IS EXPECTED TO SLOWLY INTENSIFY THROUGH
TAU 24 DUE TO INTERACTION WITH LAND. AFTER TAU 24, ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO IMPROVE ALLOWING THE SYSTEM TO REACH A
PEAK INTENSITY OF 60 KNOTS...(more)
