TY Wutip (Paolo) is expected to move westward during the next 24 hours. On the forecast track, the core of Wutip (Paolo) will rapidly traverse the rugged terrain of Laos tonight and will move along the northeastern border of Thailand through Tuesday.

TY Wutip (Paolo) will rapidly lose strength during the next 24 hours...and will be downgraded into a Tropical Storm (TS) on Tuesday afternoon. Advance Intensity Forecast (AIF) shows its 1-minute maximum sustained winds decreasing to 35 km/hr on Wednesday early morning.
