Typhoon NARI (SANTI) has slowed down and gained more strength as it moves west over the Central Philippine Sea...endangers further Central and Northern Luzon. Its western outer rainbands are spreading across the whole of Luzon including Metro Manila and Bicol Region...likely to make landfall over Aurora late this evening.

Residents and visitors along Luzon including Metro Manila and Bicol Region should closely monitor the development of Nari (Santi).

Do not use this for life or death decisions. This update is intended for additional information purposes only. Kindly refer to your national weather agency for official warnings, advisories or bulletins.


As of 11:00 am today, the eye of TY Nari (Santi) was located over the western part of the Central Philippine Sea...about 180 km north-northwest of Pandan, Catanduanes or 175 km east-southeast of Casiguran, Aurora...currently moving west with a decreased forward speed of 20 km/hr towards Aurora and Nueva Ecija Provinces.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have rapidly increased to 185 km/hr near the center with higher gusts. Typhoon Force Winds (118 km/hr or more) extend outward up to 75 kilometers from the center...and Tropical Storm Force Winds (63-117 km/hr) extend outward up to 165 kilometers. Nari (Santi) remains a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 685 kilometers across. The 24-hour rainfall accumulation near the center of Nari (Santi) is estimated to be extreme (400 mm).


TY Nari (Santi) is expected to move west-northwest to west with an increase in forward speed during the next 24 hours...slowing slightly through 48 hours. On the forecast track, the core of Nari (Santi) will be passing well to the north of Bicol Region this afternoon...and will be making landfall over Aurora somewhere north and very close to the town of Baler this evening. Nari (Santi) will then traverse the provinces of Nueva Ecija and Pangasinan late tonight through Saturday early morning before moving out into the West Philippine Sea. Throughout Saturday, the typhoon will be cruising along the Scarborough (Panatag) Shoal in the West Philippine Sea, exiting the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) late Saturday night.

TY Nari (Santi) is expected to weaken during the next 12 to 24 hours as it interacts with the mountain range of Sierra Madre. Advance Intensity Forecast (AIF) shows its 1-minute maximum sustained winds decreasing to 175 km/hr after making landfall over Aurora Province tonight and decrease further to 150 km/hr by tomorrow morning.

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

SATURDAY MORNING: Weakens to a Category 1 TY while emerging into the West Philippine Sea...about 170 km west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan [11AM OCT 12: 16.1N 118.7E @ 150kph].

MONDAY MORNING: Still heading westward...intensifies more as it approaches the coast of Central Vietnam...about 155 km south of Sanya, Hainan Island [11AM OCT 14: 16.8N 109.5E @ 175kph].

*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Day 2 and 3 Forecast Track has 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.
