North of Naga City or 65 km. North of Siruma around 9 or 10 PM tonight...and passing very close to Camarines Norte - about 55 km. North of Daet around 10 or 11 PM tonight. Around midnight, the core will move across Polillo Islands and make landfall just south of Infanta, Quezon around 2 or 3 AM tomorrow, Saturday...then traverse Northern Quezon-Rizal-Metro Manila-Manila Bay and Bataan between 4 AM until 9 AM. The 2 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows the system moving across the South China Sea on Nov 1 Sunday...and then will make landfall over Vietnam on Monday Nov 02 as a weakened Tropical Storm. It will dissipate over Cambodia on Tuesday, Nov 03. Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, so a turn to the left or right of its future track and other possibilities must be considered.
+ Effects: MIRINAE's convective circulation remains strong as it moves across the coastal areas of Camarines Provinces. The EYE remains cloud-filled w/ inner rainbands now affecting Catanduanes and Camarines Provinces. Stormy conditions not exceeding 100 kph can be expected along these areas. Its outer rainbands has started spreading across Bicol Region, Masbate, Northern Visayas and the rest of Luzon including Metro Manila...Strong winds not exceeding 60 kph can be expected beginning tonight until tomorrow...Deteriorating weather conditions can be expected across Metro Manila just after midnight until the morning, as MIRINAE passes by. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 100 mm (moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along the outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of 250 mm (heavy to very heavy rain) near the center of Mirinae. Click here to view the latest NOAA's eTRaP graphic on the storm's rainfall amount. People living around the slopes of Mayon Volcano in Albay & of Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon - especially along the areas where possible MUDFLOWS (LAHAR) FLOWS (mixture of volcanic mud and water) are located must stay alert as moderate to heavy rains associated by this system are likely to affect the area beginning tomorrow. Residents in low-lying areas & steep slopes must remain alert & seek evacuation for possible life-threatening flash floods, mudslides & landslides due to the anticipated heavy rains brought about by this system. Precautionary measures must be initiated if necessary. Possible coastal Storm Surge flooding of 6 to 8 feet above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves...is possible along the coastal areas of Bicol Region and Eastern Luzon. Moderate damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the beach-front areas of Eastern & Northern Visayas.

*TYPHOON (TY) 23W (MIRINAE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 205 NM EAST OF
MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED JUST SOUTH OF WEST AT 13 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST SIX HOURS. TY 23W HAS WEAKENED SLIGHTLY AS THE SOUTHWESTERN
QUADRANT OF THE SYSTEM DRAGGED ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN PROVINCES OF
LUZON. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY SHOWS A TIGHT BANDING EYE THAT
MADE IT EASY TO LOCATE THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS AVERAGED FROM THE DVORAK ESTIMATES OF PGTW, RJTD AND
KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE TYPHOON CONTINUES TO HAVE
GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW ENHANCED BY THE PRESENCE OF A MESOSCALE ANTI-
CYCLONE DIRECTLY OVERHEAD. TY MIRINAE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
TRACKING WESTWARD THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD ALONG THE SOUTHERN
PERIPHERY OF A STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH. IT WILL MAKE
LANDFALL IN QUEZON PROVINCE BY TAU 12, DEFLECT SLIGHTLY TO THE NORTH
ACROSS MANILA, AND EMERGE IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA AS A SLIGHTLY
WEAKENED TYPHOON LESS THAN 10 HOURS AFTER LANDFALL. IT WILL CONTINUE
TO STEADILY WEAKEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF INCREASINGLY UNFAVORABLE
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR ASSOCIATED WITH THE COMBINATION OF EASTERLY UPPER
LEVEL FLOW SOUTH OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE AXIS AND LOW LEVEL
NORTHEASTERLY FLOW INDUCED BY AN EARLY-SEASON COLD SURGE. MIRINAE
WILL MAKE LANDFALL IN SOUTH-CENTRAL VIETNAM JUST BEFORE TAU 72 AND
WILL DISSIPATE OVER LAND AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE BY TAU 96.
THE MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH THIS FORECAST TRACK WITH
WBAR REMAINING AS THE SOLE OUTLIER TO THE RIGHT OF THE ENVELOPE. SOME
OF THE MODEL AIDS, INCLUDING JGSM, UKMET, AND GFS TAKE THE SYSTEM A
LITTLE MORE SOUTH TOWARDS HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM...(more)
