|Current Status and Outlook||
Tropical Depression ROSAL (PAKHAR) has rapidly intensified into a Severe Tropical Storm (STS) as it accelerates east-northeast across the North Philippine Sea. This system has already reached its peak intensity, and for the next couple of days a sharp weakening trend is expected with complete dissipation on Wednesday or Thursday (Dec. 14-15) as the storm turns south to southwestward.
STS ROSAL’s circulation remains over the open waters of the North Philippine Sea with no direct effect to any part of the country. However, it will enhance the Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) and bring cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers across Extreme Northern Luzon particularly Cagayan Valley.
