Nida Downgraded

Nida continues to lose strength and is now downgraded to a tropical storm (winds of 95kph). Latest satellite data has shown that Nida has already entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. PAGASA will name the storm "Vinta".

Nida will not affect the Philippines and will quickly leave the PAR, if not dissipate. With the weakening of Nida comes another threat. An area of low pressure mentioned in our Nov. 29 bulletin has continued to flare up west of Guam. Formation of a tropical cyclone is possible, as well as interaction with Nida, which is located just 600km NW. More in-depth anaylsis will be posted in our 4pm bulletin.
