Current Status & Outlook Tropical Depression (TD) QUEENIE newly-formed over the South Philippine Sea has quickly intensified into a Tropical Storm (TS) upon crossing the Republic of Palau. Frequent lightning with severe thunderstorms, heavy rains and gusty winds were reported over the capital, Koror during its passage.  The storm is now inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

48-hr Outlook: TS QUEENIE is forecast to maintain its strength during the next 12 hours, before weakening into a TD by tomorrow morning, and will continue to dissipate until its demise near the coastal waters of Surigao Provinces on Wednesday morning (Nov 02). The weakening is due to increased dry air and unfavorable upper-level conditions over the area. Its forecast forward speed will decrease from 22 kph to 15 kph while turning WNW for the next couple of days.
