EFFECTS & HAZARDS SUMMARY CURRENT EASTERLIES INTENSITY: STRONG >> Mostly cloudy skies with passing showers to widespread rains can be expected along these following affected areas: BICOL REGION, EASTERN VISAYAS & EASTERN MINDANAO. Light to moderate East, ENE, NE winds (not in excess of 30 kph) can be expected today. Strong easterlies (trade winds) are one of the signs of a strong La Nina climate occurring across the Pacific Ocean.
No longer available...due to system becoming XT Cyclone.

*EXTRATROPICAL (XT) CYCLONE 16W (CHABA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF TOKYO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED NORTHEASTWARD AT 22
KNOTS DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. THE CYCLONE HAS LOST ALL
IDENTIFIABLE TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND IS NOW BEING CLASSIFIED AS
AN XT CYCLONE. FORMATIVE FRONTAL FEATURES HAVE BECOME MORE EVIDENT
IN ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY OVER THE PAST FEW HOURS
AS THE SYSTEM EMBEDS WITHIN THE BAROCLINIC ZONE. EXCESSIVE VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE POLAR JET HAS DEPLETED DEEP
CONVECTION IN ALL BUT THE NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT. HOWEVER, EVEN THIS
CONVECTION HAS WEAKENED CONSIDERABLY SINCE THE PREVIOUS FORECAST.
THE CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE TO WEAKEN AS IT ACCELERATES INTO THE MID-
LATITUDES. THE CURRENT POSITION IS BASED ON DVORAK AND RADAR FIXES
FROM PGTW AND RJTD. THE INITIAL FORECAST INTENSITY IS BASED ON AN XT
DATA-T NUMBER OF 3.5 FROM PGTW, AND A CORRESPONDING CURRENT
INTENSITY OF 4.0...(more)
>> CHABA, meaning: Tropical flower (the shoeflower, genus hibiscus). Name contributed by: Thailand.
