+ Forecast Outlook: NIDA is expected to drift very slowly West to WNW and continues to weaken within the next 2 days. The 3 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows the system just a Tropical Storm as strong upper-level winds (Vertical Wind Shear) affects the system by early Thursday morning (2AM Dec 03: 20.8N 136.0E). NIDA will rapidly dissipate along the NE coast of Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) while moving WSW slowly on Friday until Saturday (2AM Dec 04: 20.5N 135.2E...2AM Dec 05: 20.1N 134.5E). 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 & Hazards: NIDA is not affecting any major islands at this time. 6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 150 mm (light to moderate rain) can be expected along the outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of 250 mm (heavy rain) near the center or EyeWall of Nida.

Current NE Monsoon Intensity: MODERATE
[Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, effects, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!]

*ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES WEAKENING CORE
CONVECTION, HOWEVER, A 291739Z TRMM IMAGE SHOWS THAT THE SYSTEM HAS
MAINTAINED A ROUND 50 NM EYE WITH A SYMMETRIC EYEWALL. THERE IS HIGH
CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON THE TRMM 37 GHZ WHICH
SHOWS A SMALLER MICROWAVE EYE SIGNATURE. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS
BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 102 TO 127 KNOTS. NUMERICAL
GUIDANCE REMAINS IN POOR AGREEMENT WITH TWO DISTINCT CLUSTERS.
NOGAPS, GFDN, AND WBAR STILL FAVOR A RECURVATURE SCENARIO AND TRACK
THE SYSTEM NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD TO NORTHEASTWARD RAPIDLY, WHILE JGSM,
TC-LAPS, UKMO, ECMWF, AND GFS FAVOR A SLOWER WESTWARD TRACK WITH
DISSIPATION. THE OFFICIAL FORECAST FAVORS THE SLOW WESTWARD MOVEMENT
WITH DISSIPATION AFTER 72 HOURS. ANALYSIS DATA CONTINUES TO INDICATE
STRONG LOW-LEVEL RIDGING NORTH OF THE SYSTEM WITH HIGH ZONAL UPPER-
LEVEL FLOW NORTH OF 25N, WHICH SUPPORTS THE CURRENT FORECAST
