A strange guy of storm and strong Habagat
Northwest Pacific isn’t friendly at this moment. Off the north of the Philippines a Tropical Storm called TRAMI / Maring runs on a strange track and is amplifying the south-west monsoon also known as Habagat.
Result: Strong winds on the western shores and heavy rains on the western flanks of the mountains from the Visayas up to northern Luzon.
Nice weather in the south with high waves and steady strong winds.

Meanwhile, the Severe Tropical Storm PEWA /01C has tracked northwestward over the far Western Pacific Ocean.
Its center was located about 1,470 km southeast of Wake Island or 5,860 km east of the Philippines (13.0° N 178.7° E) with maximum winds of 95 km/h. The storm is moving NW @ 15 kpm/h towards Wake Island. This storm is still much too far to affect any part of the Philippines, but we keep an eye on it.
