IN-FA has weakened back to a Tropical Storm during the past 24 hours while passing near Chuuk State in Central Micronesia...could regain Typhoon status within the next 24 hours...threatens Guam and Southern Marianas. Based on the latest Global Dynamic Forecast Models (GDFM), IN-FA is expected to pass just to the south of Guam by early Saturday morning, Nov 21st. The long-range forecast shows that there is now an 80% chance that this typhoon will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday evening or early Monday morning (Nov 22-23).

As of 5:00 PM PhT (09:00 GMT) today, Thursday, November 19, 2015, the center of TS IN-FA was located some 834 km Southeast of Guam or 2,722 km East of Northern Mindanao, Philippines [9.0N 151.0E]...with maximum sustained winds of 95 kph near the center and gustiness up to 120 kph. It was moving West-Northwest to Northwest at 24 kph towards Guam-Southern Marianas Area.

TS IN-FA remains 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 (Fri Nov 20).
