Typhoon Mirinae to Enter PAR

Mirinae was last located 1600km ENE of Manila. It has maximum winds of 130kph, which means it is now a typhoon. It is moving west at 30kph and is expected to enter the Philippines later tonight (Wednesday). Mirinae will then be named "Santi" as it enters the PAR.

Long-term forecast didn't change. Santi will still intensify in the next 2 days, possibly attaining cat 3. This development, however, will be limited due to the Ridge north. Landfall will be on Saturday, with maximum winds of up to 190kph. Based on its current movement, potential places that will be severely affected include the Central Luzon Provinces and possibly some in the Northern Luzon. NCR will experience strong winds as well. It should exit Luzon by Sunday morning and possibly leave PAR by Monday.
