Current Status and Outlook

A small Super Typhoon with the global name “Hinnamnor” passing near Okinawa is about to enter the Northern Border of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). Meanwhile, alongside to its south a disorganized Tropical Depression with local name “Gardo” is having a binary interaction (aka. Fujiwhara Effect) and may eventually be absorbed into the circulation of Hinnamnor within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Within the next 3 days (Sept 1-3), the presence of these two tropical cyclones will enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) across Luzon, MiMaRoPa and Western Visayas incl. Sulu Archipelago. Scattered to occasional rains with thunderstorms especially in the afternoon and evening will be expected across the above monsoon-affected areas.

Where is HINNAMNOR? As of 11:00 AM PhT today, August 31…0300 GMT:

  • Location of Center: Along the southern coastal waters of Okinawa, Japan (near 25.7°N 129.6°E)
  • Distance 1: 811 km east of Taipei, Taiwan
  • Distance 2: 920 km east-northeast of Taitung, Taiwan
  • Distance 3: 971 km northeast of Basco, Batanes
Where is GARDO? As of 11:00 AM PhT today, August 31…0300 GMT:

  • Location of Center: Over the southeastern portion of the North Philippine Sea (near 20.8°N 132.3°E)
  • Distance 1: 609 km south-southeast of Super Typhoon Hinnamnor
  • Distance 2: 1,094 km east-northeast of Santa Ana, Cagayan
  • Distance 3: 1,074 km east of Basco, Batanes
How strong are they? Hinnamnor’s Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min avg): 250 kph near the center…Gustiness: 305 kph.
Gardo’s Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min avg): 55 kph near the center…Gustiness: 75 kph.
Past Movements (06 hrs) Hinnamnor: West-Southwest @ 24 kph, across the North Philippine Sea.
Gardo: North @ 09 kph, across the North Philippine Sea.
Forecast Highlights
  • Super Typhoon Hinnamnor and Tropical Depression Gardo will not directly affect any parts of the Philippines. So, no Philippine landfall is expected. However, the outer rainbands of Hinnamnor will bring cloudy skies with rain showers and thunderstorms to the Batanes and Babuyan Group of Islands beginning tomorrow through Saturday (Sept 03). The seas around Extreme Northern Luzon will be rough and dangerous to small seacrafts.
  • STY Hinnamnor will be named domestically by PAGASA as “Henry” once  it enters the PAR within the next few hours.  
  • Between Sept 1-3, STY Hinnamnor will slow down its southerly track and likely to remain quasi-stationary over the North Philippine Sea. Meanwhile, TD Gardo will be completely absorbed into the circulation of Hinnamnor therefore losing its characteristics being a Tropical Cyclone.
  • These systems will enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) and could bring scattered to occasional rains and thunderstorms along the western sections of Luzon & Visayas including NCR & MiMaRoPa beginning tomorrow through Sunday (Sept 04).
  • Hinnamnor is Forecast to Exit PAR:  Saturday Night or Sunday Morning (Sept. 03-04).
This StormWatch is valid for the next 24 hours.
