Typhoon Nida

Typhoon Nida has weakened in the past 24 hours and is now down to a Category 4 typhoon. Winds have decreased to 230kph. Nida has moved very little, with JMA saying that the system is almost stationary. There also have been a few changes with regards to the track. We believe that Nida will continue to move slowly in the next 24-36 hours. Nida will move NNW or northwestward and eventually dissipate; a number of models support this scenario. CMC actually forecasts Nida to move westward to southwestward and possibly enter PAR as a minimal tropical storm. There is a low chance for this scenario to happen; Nida will continue to be watched.
