Issued: 6:00 AM PhT (22:00 GMT) Tuesday 20 August 2013
Next Update: 12:00 NN PhT (04:00 GMT) Tuesday 20 August 2013

Tropical Storm TRAMI (MARING) has gained more strength and accelerated slightly northward across the North Philippine Sea.

This storm will continue to induce the Southwest Monsoon (Hanging Habagat) - bringing cloudy and windy conditions with "on-and-off" slight to moderate to sometimes heavy rains across the western sections of Luzon and Visayas...becoming more frequent with moderate-to-heavy monsoon rains along Mindoro, the National Capital Region (Metro Manila), Zambales, Cordillera Administrative Region, and CaLaBaRZon today through Wednesday. Flash floods and landslides are likely in hazard-prone areas especially along river banks and mountain slopes.

Meanwhile, PEWA (01C) has weakened into a Tropical Storm (TS) while moving across the open seas of the Western Pacific Ocean. Latest dynamic forecast models continues to show the system moving generally northwestward for the next 2 days. Its center was located about 1,110 km southeast of Wake Island or 5,535 km east of the Philippines (14.8N Lat 175.9E Lon)...with maximum winds of 110 km/hr near the center...moving WNW @ 15 kph. This storm remains too far away to affect any part of the Philippines.

Residents and visitors along Taiwan and the islands of Okinawa-Ryukyu-Miyako-Yaeyama-Ishigaki-Batanes Islands should closely monitor the development of Trami (Maring).

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have increased to near 100 km/hr near the center with higher gusts. Tropical Storm Force Winds (63-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 140 kilometers from the center. Trami (Maring) has increased to an average-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 480 kilometers across. The 24-hour rainfall accumulation near the center of Trami (Maring) is estimated to be extreme (400 mm).


TS Trami (Maring) is expected to move north-northwest to northwest during the next 12 to 24 hours...and will turn west to west-northwest by 48 hours. On the forecast track, the core of Trami (Maring) will be passing over the Miyako and Yaeyama Island Group, very close to Ishigakijima on Wednesday noon...and will pass over the shores of Northern Taiwan by early Thursday morning...making landfall over Fujian Province, just south of Fuzhou City Thursday afternoon. By Friday morning, Trami (Maring) will be over Fujian Province moving across land.

Trami (Maring) is expected to continue gaining strength within the next 24 to 48 hours...and could become a Typhoon later tonight or Wednesday. Advance Intensity Forecast (AIF) shows Trami (Maring) reaching its peak winds of 130 km/hr on Thursday.

The following is the summary of the 2-day forecast outlook and an extended 3-day forecast on this system:

WEDNESDAY MORNING: Becomes a minimal Typhoon...begins its westerly turn towards the northern shores of Taiwan...about 155 km east of Ishigakijima [5AM AUG 21: 24.3N 125.8E @ 120kph].
