TROPICAL STORM PABUK (CHEDENG) CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY AS IT
TURNS WESTWARD OVER THE PHILIPPINE SEA…THREATENS TAIWAN-
BATANES AREA. THIS SYSTEM IS LIKELY TO ENHANCE THE SOUTH-
WEST MONSOON AND BRING MONSOON RAINS ACROSS LUZON IN THE
COMING DAYS.

+ FORECAST OUTLOOK: PABUK is expected to resume its WNW and
track in the direction of Northern Taiwan, becoming a 120-
km/hr Typhoon early tomorrow morning, Aug 7. The 2 to 5-day
forecast shows PABUK accelerating further becoming a 175-
km/hr Category 2 Typhoon before passing close to the north
of Taiwan on Wednesday morning, Aug 08. This potential ty-
phoon shall make landfall over Eastern China, just to the
north of Wenzhou, China on Wednesday evening, Aug 08 or
early Thursday morning, Aug 9 as a downgraded Category 1
Typhoon (120 km/hr). It shall track NW’ly across Eastern
to NE China and dissipate early Saturday morning, Aug 10


+ EFFECTS: PABUK’s circulation continues to consolidate.
As of the moment, the large circulation remains over the
Northern Philippine Sea only affecting various shipping
lines
.


+ CURRENT MONSOON INTENSITY: The Southwest (SW) Monsoon
is now starting to be enhanced by PABUK…Cloudy skies
with possible intermittent passing rains or thunderstorms
with SW’ly winds of 15 km/hr or higher can be expected
along the western sections of Southern Luzon (including
Bicol Region), Visayas & Mindanao particularly the wes-
tern sections. This monsoon system may reach Northern &
Central Luzon tomorrow or Wednesday. Meanwhile, strong
Thunderstorms can be expected again over Luzon this
afternoon until early evening, bringing moderate to
heavy rains
.

+ TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCH: Refer to TD 06W for more up-
dates.

Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast
outlook, effects & current monsoon intensity, and tropical
