Forecast Highlights
  • Since this TD is too far away from the Philippine Landmass, no direct effect is expected from this system. However, the Southwest Monsoon (#Habagat) will be enhanced by TD FABIAN, where scattered to “on-&-off” rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected across the western sections of the country beginning this weekend through early next week. Kindly refer to our attached StormWatch Track for the forecast wind speeds of this cyclone.
  • TD FABIAN could become a Typhoon and leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Tuesday evening, July 20 as it tracks south of Okinawa towards Northern Taiwan and Eastern China. The probability of this forecast remains very low due to high uncertainty of all of the Typhoon Global Models.
  • This StormWatch is valid for the next 24 hours.
Information based on data collected by Typhoon2000 (T2k) shall not be taken as official data. Weather information broadcasted and distributed by PAGASA remains as official data. Typhoon2000 (T2k) shall not be responsible for the private use and reliance of its weather information.
