TS MALOU's latest forecast suite remains unchanged since this noontime. It is expected to maintain its NW path for the next 24 hours before turning NNW throughout the forecast period. MALOU is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) later tonight...and will pass very close to the SW of Okinawa by tomorrow morning...then moving away from the area in the afternoon [2AM SEP 04: 25.4N 128.5E @ 75kph...2PM SEP 04: 26.9N 126.7E @ 85kph].

EFFECTS & HAZARDS
Its circulation not yet well organized while over the NE part of the Philippine Sea. An upper-level low (aka Tropical Upper Troposheric Trough) west of it is suppressing the development of MALOU, especially along the western quadrant. No hazards and effects from this cyclone are taking place as of this time. Click here to view the latest NOAA-CIRA's Wind Analysis. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 50 mm (light rain) can be expected along its rainbands...with isolated amounts of up to 225 mm (Heavy) near the center of 10W.

CURRENT SOUTHWEST MONSOON INTENSITY: MODERATE >> Mostly cloudy skies with passing on-&-off rains and thunderstorms can be expected along these following affected areas: LUZON including METRO MANILA, PALAWAN, CALAMIAN GROUP, MINDORO, MASBATE, BICOL REGION AND VISAYAS. Light to moderate SW winds (not in excess of 35 kph) can be expected today.
Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, extended forecast, effects-hazards, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!

*TROPICAL STORM (TS) 10W (MALOU). LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 235 NM
SOUTHEAST OF KADENA AB, OKINAWA, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWEST-
WARD AT 19 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS IMPROVED OUTFLOW ON THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT WITH DEEPER
CONVECTION THAT IS MOSTLY TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. THE SAME ANIMATION ALSO SHOWS A TUTT CELL TO THE
WEST THAT IS IMPINGING THE OUTFLOW ALONG THE WESTERN FLANK OF THE
SYSTEM. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL
IMAGERY AND EXTRAPOLATED FROM A 030516Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE IMAGE WITH
POOR CONFIDENCE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS AVERAGED FROM DVORAK
ESTIMATES OF 35 KNOTS FROM PGTW, KNES, AND RJTD. TS 10W WILL CONTINUE
TO TRACK NORTHWESTWARD ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE ENTRENCHED JUST SOUTH OF MAINLAND JAPAN THROUGH TAU
72. AFTERWARD, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO DRIFT INTO A WEAK STEERING
FLOW IN THE YELLOW SEA AS THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE RIDGE BREAKS DOWN
IN RESPONSE TO A PASSING MID-LATITUDE TROUGH. TS MALOU WILL THEN
WEAKEN DUE TO THE COOLER WATERS OF THE NORTHERN YELLOW SEA AND
EXPOSURE TO WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
BAROCLINIC ZONE. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE ARE IN FAIR AGREEMENT UP TO
TAU 48 THEN OFFER VARIOUS SOLUTIONS TO THE WEAK STEERING ENVIRONMENT.
CONSEQUENTLY, ERRATIC STORM MOTION AFTER TAU 72 IS A DISTINCT
