Tropical Storm IN-FA (27W) StormWatch No. 02
Tropical Storm 27W is now a well-developed Typhoon (TY) as it moves closer to Central Micronesia....now internationally named as "IN-FA" - a Macao/Chinese name for fireworks. Based on the initial Global Dynamic Forecast Models (GDFM), IN-FA is expected to become a strong Typhoon as it passes close to the south of Guam on Saturday, Nov 21st. The long-range forecast shows that there is still a 50-50 chance that this typhoon will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Monday (Nov 23).
As of 5:00 PM PhT (09:00 GMT) today, Wednesday, November 18, 2015, the center of TS IN-FA was located some 402 km Southeast of Chuuk State, Micronesia or 3,161 km East-Southeast of the Mindanao, Philippines [6.1N 155.2E]...with maximum sustained winds of 120 kph near the center and gustiness up to 150 kph. It was moving West-Northwest at 21 kph towards Central Micronesia.
TS IN-FA is still too far away to directly affect any part of the Philippines.
Please monitor the situation closely and stay tuned for the latest info on TS IN-FA. The next WeatherPhilippines StormWatch on this system will be issued tomorrow evening (Thu Nov 19).
