EFFECTS & HAZARDS
MALOU's low-level circulation center (LLCC) has become fully-exposed or simply a center with less clouds. The storm's convective rain bands has been moving ahead towards the north...approaching Cheju Island. Strong winds associate with this system are located mainly along these rain bands. No serious hazards and effects from this cyclone are taking place as of this time, except for rainfall, squalls and thunderstorms located within the northward-moving rain bands. 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 100 mm (Moderate) situated just to the east of MALOU's low-level center or along the eastern quadrant.
