TD Bopha (Pablo) Update #29 (w/ Video) [FINAL]

NOTE: Here is our latest and final Video Update on Bopha.

Text Update

Tropical Depression Bopha (Bagyong Pablo) is now finally dissipating just west of Luzon. The remnant circulation was last located approximately 100km west of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte. Maximum sustained winds are now down to 35kph with gusts of up to 55kph. Bopha is moving eastward at around 5kph.

All Public Storm Warning Signals have now been lowered by PAGASA.

Latest satellite image showing very little convective activity associated with Bopha. The remnant circulation is still intact, though, but is hard to discern on the image above. The proximity of Bopha's remnants is resulting to some light rains and breezy condition in Northern Luzon. In fact, Laoag is still reporting winds of up to 40kph. Parts of Ilocos Norte and Apayao are also reporting light rains this afternoon. Rains and winds could continue throughout the night but shouldn't really be that significant. Expect much better conditions overall by tomorrow as Bopha's remnants will be fully absorbed by the frontal boundary north of the Philippines.

All weather agencies have now issued their respective final warnings for Bopha. Hopefully, this will be our last cyclone of this year. No signs of tropical threat over the next few days. However, there will still be some isolated showers and thunderstorms that could pop up across the country. The northeast monsoon (Amihan) could also bring some light rains across Luzon over the next few days.

This will be our final update on Bopha (Pablo). We'll still have Tropical Updates every now and then.
Issued (11 UTC) 7pm PhT 120912
