Nida Re-intensifies

After being downgraded to a Category 4, Nida has regained its strength as it continues to undergo eyewall replacement. It is a Category 5 super typhoon again with winds of up to 280kph and gusts reaching over 330kph. The forecast for the storm has become erratic as different weather agencies give their own outlook. Nevertheless, we think that Nida will remain a Category 5 typhoon in the next 12 hours or so as it moves very slowly northward. We expect the storm to eventually move northeastward, basing it on a number of model predictions. It will also weaken as it moves toward cooler waters and areas of high vertical wind shear.
