Tropical Storm MATMO/Henry has intensified as it entered PAR. Tropical Storm MATMO/Henry is expected to continue moving slowly north-northwestward during the next 24 to 48 hours. On the forecast track, the storm will continue to move across the central and northern portion of the Philippine Sea through Monday morning. The storm will not make landfall in the Philippines.

Meanwhile Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda has intensified and is now a Typhoon Cat.4. Typhoon RAMMASUN/Glenda will make landfall today in the vicinity of Hainan (China).


Begin of next week, Tropical Storm MATMO/Henry might be upgraded to a Typhoon Cat.1 before approaching Taiwan.
