Please watch our Video Update for below for the latest analysis and forecasts for Typhoon Rammasun. We are also watching a developing low pressure area east of Mindanao so be sure to watch our video for more information about that LPA.

Typhoon Rammasun (Bagyong Glenda) is now moving quickly away from the Philippines. The storm center was last located approximately 320km west northwest of Manila. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to 140kph with gusts of up to 175kph making Rammasun a Category 1 Typhoon. The system is currently moving west northwestward at 30kph.

As of 5pm this afternoon, PAGASA has removed most Signal Warnings in the country. However, Public Storm Warning Signal #1 is still up for the following areas: Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bataan, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, Lubang Island, Pangasinan, and Metro Manila.

Latest satellite image shows the center of Rammasun is now moving away across the waters of the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea). There are still some residual rains moving across Southern and Central Luzon bringing light to moderate rain showers. We expect those to gradually taper off tonight and into tomorrow.

Typhoon Rammasun will continue moving quickly to the northwest and should exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility by tomorrow morning (Thursday). We are also expecting the system to re-intensify as it moves across the open waters. Rammasun is forecast to move into Hainan Island by Friday afternoon and then towards Northern Vietnam by Saturday.

We'll have another update tomorrow morning.
