Issued: 6:00 AM PhT (22:00 GMT) Thursday 22 August 2013

Typhoon TRAMI (MARING) is now making landfall very near to the south of Fuzhou City in Fujian Province...Typhoon Conditions with threatening floods and landslides may be expected along Fujian Province this morning...extending across Jiangxi Province later today. Rapid dissipation of this cyclone will be expected within the next 24 to 48 hours due to land interaction and frictional effects.

This typhoon 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 along the coastal areas of Bataan, Zambales, Pangasinan, Ilocos Provinces and La Union today. Improving weather conditions will be expected beginning til Friday. Flash floods and landslides are likely in hazard-prone areas especially along river banks and mountain slopes

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm (TS) PEWA (01C) continues to move slowly across the open seas of the Western Pacific Ocean. Latest dynamic forecast models continues to show the system intensifying as it moves generally northwestward during the next 3 days. Its center was located about 415 km northeast of Wake Island or 4,830 km east-northeast of the Philippines (21.5N Lat 169.9E Lon)...with maximum winds of 65 km/hr near the center...moving WNW @ 11 kph. This storm is too far away to affect any part of the Philippines.

As of 5:00 am today, the eye of Typhoon Trami (Maring) was located near over Fujian Province, Southeastern China...about 70 km southwest of Fuzhou City, China or 145 km north-northeast of Xiamen City, China...currently moving west with a decreased forward speed of 22 km/hr towards Fujian and Jiangxi Provinces (Southeastern China).

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have increased to 140 km/hr near the center with higher gusts. Typhoon Force Winds (118 km/hr or more) extend outward up to 45 kilometers from the center...and Tropical Storm Force Winds (63-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 185 kilometers. Trami (Maring) remains a very large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 935 kilometers across. The 24-hour rainfall accumulation near the center of Trami (Maring) is estimated to be heavy (300 mm).


Typhoon Trami (Maring) is expected to move generally westward during the next 12 hours, with a slight west-southwest turn thereafter. On the forecast track, the core of Trami (Maring) will be traversing Fujian Province (Southeastern China) this morning...and will move across Jiangxi Province later this afternoon or evening. By Friday morning, it will be moving over the eastern part of Hunan Province (Southeastern China).

Trami (Maring) will start to rapidly weaken within the next 12 to 18 hours...decaying into a Tropical Depression (TD) on Friday morning. Complete dissipation of this cyclone will be expected on Saturday.

The following is the summary of the 1-day forecast outlook on this system:

FRIDAY MORNING: Moving over Hunan Province...just a TD as it dissipates rapidly over land...about 410 km north of Hong Kong, China [5AM AUG 23: 26.0N 113.9E @ 65kph].

*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Day 2 and 3 Forecast Tracks have an average error of 100 and 250 km respectively...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.
