TY Nesat (Pedring) Update #12 Brief

Typhoon Nesat (Pedring) is now moving over the Isabela-Aurora Border, approximately 30km north northwest of Casiguran, Aurora or about 220km northeast of Manila. Nesat has weakened slightly to Category 2 Status with maximum sustained winds decreasing to about 175kph gusting to 210kph. It is moving westward at 20kph.

Latest VIS Image here shows the center of Nesat is now cloud-covered as it interacts with land. Convective activity remains pretty strong and much of Luzon right now is experiencing Tropical Storm-Force winds. Typhoon-force winds, on the other hand, extends to about 60km away from the center.

Rainfall amounts so far in Bicol and Southern Luzon range from 100 to 200mm. We should see similar amounts in Northern Luzon, some areas could receive upwards of up to 300mm or more, particularly near the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Mountain Province/Benguet/Ifugao Area.

We'll have more updates regarding track later on our afternoon update.
