Bopha/Pablo 07-12-2012

Typhoon BOPHA/Pablo again got stronger and is again a Typhoon Cat.2.It is hovering over the West Philippine Sea. It’s future direction depends on so many parameters that a serious long-term forecast is not possible at this moment.

Typhoon BOPHA/Pablo has again developed a clearly visible eye. During the next 2 days the typhoon will move only slowly. If it encounters sea surface temperatures below 27°C, it will vanish. If not, nearly any future track will be possible.
