Tropical Storm BAVI plays tricks
Tropical Storm BAVI plays tricks with observers and forecasters. The storm slowed down its forward speed to 25 km/h. The track direction varies between west and northwest.
Yesterday afternoon Tropical Storm BAVI looked like a menacing compact bowl east of northern Luzon.
The past track of the storm shows its vulnerability to influences from other pressure systems over China and Japan. South of Asian main continent lows and highs are chasing. Tropical Storm BAVI is being moved north and south like a badminton shuttlecock.
WARNING: Missing infrared visibility of clouds doesn’t mean that the storm has vanished. It is still there and wind speeds of 75 km/h can still be dangerous.
