DOKSURI (DINDO) is expected to move generally west-northwestward throughout the forecast period. On the forecast track, the core of Doksuri will pass very close to the northern tip of Cagayan...near Santa Ana, Cagayan on Thursday evening and traverse the Balintang Channel on Friday morning.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) is near 65 km/hr (35 knots) with higher gusts. Continued increase in strength will be expected as the system moves closer to Extreme Northern Luzon and will be at near-typhoon intensity on Friday morning.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-85 km/hr) extend outward up to 35 kilometers (20 nautical miles) from the center. DOKSURI is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 890 kilometers (480 nautical miles).

The following is the summary of the 3-day forecast outlook on this system:

WEDNESDAY EVENING: Intensifying as it moves across the Philippine Sea closer to Northern Luzon...about 450 km East of Palanan Bay, Isabela [8PM JUN 27: 16.8N 126.7E @ 85kph].
THURSDAY EVENING: Passing very close to the northern tip of Cagayan, about 54 km NE of Santa Ana, Cagayan [8PM JUN 28: 18.8N 122.6E @ 95kph].
FRIDAY EVENING: Almost a typhoon as it moves into the West Philippine Sea...about 276 km WNW of Calayan Island [8PM JUN 29: 20.1N 119.0E @ 100kph].

*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Day 3 Forecast Track have an average error of 250 km...while the wind speed forecast error, averages 35 kph per day. Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.


Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:

RAINBANDS - affecting & spreading across Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas. Cloudy/Rainy Conditions w/ moderate to strong winds (<62 kph) will be expected along these bands (click here to know more about Rainbands).
24HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 200 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 201 to 380 mm (high) along areas near the center of Doksuri (Dindo). (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 1-3 ft [0.3-0.9 m] above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves can be expected along the coastal, inland lakes and beach front areas of Eastern Visayas and Bicol Region. Very minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the beach-front areas of Western Luzon and Vietnam.
