Tropical Update

Wukong has finally dissipated over the South China Sea. However, its remnants will continue to bring light rains across Indochina. Meanwhile, much of the Philippines remain quiet except for the northern and eastern sections.

Wukong dissipated early this morning and all agencies have given their final warnings for this system. However, Wukong's remnants are still bringing scattered rain showers across Southern Vietnam. It will also bring rains into Thailand and Malaysia as it moves into the Malay Peninsula. Not much is expected here although some areas may still get up to 50mm of rain tonight and into tomorrow.

A cold-front is enhancing some rain showers across Northern Luzon particularly in the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, and Aurora. Islands north of Luzon such as Calayan and Babuyan are also seeing some rains since yesterday. Some areas here could see up to 80mm of rain over the next 24 hours. Eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao may also see some light rains showers tomorrow.

As for the Tropics, we're not seeing any disturbance that could develop into a cyclone over the next few days. However, there are indications of a possible weak cyclone that could form by late next week. A couple of models and their ensemble counterpart are beginning to show this scenario. Please note that this is not, in any way, set in stone and the chances right now are still pretty small--just something to keep in mind as we ring in the New Year.

We'll have another update tomorrow.
