Tropical Disturbance (LPA) 01W [AMANG] Final StormWatch




Issued at: 7:00 AM PhT (23:00 GMT) Tuesday 22 January 2019
Current Status and Outlook Tropical Disturbance (LPA) 01W [AMANG] remains weak as it moved north to northeastward across the Central Philippine Sea during the past 24 hours, after crossing the Northeastern Part of Samar Island.  This LPA has started to interact with yet another surge of cold Northeasterly Monsoonal Flow, with its thick mid-level rainbands just over the sea.

Since the system is no longer a threat to the Philippine Islands, this is now the Final StormWatch on this low pressure area. 

Meanwhile, the combination of the LPA’s rainbands and the enhanced Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) will still continue to bring occasionally light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers & possible thunderstorms across Bicol and Quezon Provinces, becoming more frequent along the eastern coastal areas. These rains could produce flooding and landslides along hazard-risk areas. Please take all necessary precautions.

Where is LPA 01W (AMANG)? As of 5:00 AM PhT today, January 22…2100 GMT. The center was located along the mid-western part of the Central Philippine Sea (near 14.1°N 125.6°E), about 162 km east-northeast of Virac, Catanduanes or 265 km east-northeast of Naga City, Camarines Sur
How strong is it? Maximum Sustained Winds (10-min avg): 35 kph near the center…Gustiness: 50 kph
Past Movement (06 hrs) North-Northeast Slowly, across the Central Philippine Sea.
Forecast Highlights
  • This LPA is likely to dissipate over water within the next 24 to 48 hours, and be absorbed within the flow of the Northeast Monsoon (Amihan).
  • This is the Final StormWatch on this weather disurbance.
