PAGASA 9th Typhoon IGME Forecast track

In less than a month we are battered by 3 typhoons and weather disturbance Habagat. Hundred people are dead and leaving thousands of families affected with floods and devastated agricultural crops.

Some families return to their homes from evacuation center and other low lying areas are still flooded. Despite of good weather condition in past few days, a new LPA (now already a typhoon) is sighted 510 km North Northeast of Basco, Batanes as of 8pm August 28, 2012.

Previously, various forecast models show that this LPA will develop into typhoon in 1-2 days and will be called IGME - the 9th typhoon that entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in 2012.

Typhoon IGME Forecast Track

Coordinates: 25.3N, 123.6E
Signal #1 (30-60 kph): None
Signal #2 (61-100 kph): None
(1) 645 km North Northeast of Basco, Batanes - Wednesday
Strength: 110 kph near center

Movement: North Northeast at 22 kph
Rain Volume: 10-18mm/hr (Moderate to Heavy) within 500 km

This weather system is expected to enhance Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) that will bring light and moderate rains over western section of Luzon which may triggered flash floods and landslides to prone areas.

Fishing boats and small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the seaboards of Northern Luzon and Western seaboard of Central Luzon.

Typhoon IGME made a U-Turn due to interaction with Typhoon JULIAN.

So, everybody is advised to monitor weather from time to time. For possibility of rain and river stream level in your area, you can visit PAGASA DOST Project NOAH.
