Typhoon Mirinae (23W), located approximately 650 nautical miles east of Manila, Philippines, has tracked westward at 15 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 30 feet.

The Philippine weather bureau has placed four areas under storm signal number one as Mirinae intensified and continued moving toward Luzon, northern Philippines.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecast Thursday that TY 23W will make a landfall Friday night and bring heavy rains to the provinces of Isabela, Aurora, Northern Quezon and Polillo Islands.

PAGASA has advised residents in these areas, especially those living in low-lying areas and near mountain slopes, to prepare for possible flashfloods and landslides. irinae is expected to bring more rain, and have winds more powerful than Typhoon Parma (19W) which battered northern Luzon early this month.

Typhoon Mirinae (23W), located approximately 305 nautical miles west-northwest of Guam, has tracked westward at 17 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 17 feet.

Animated infrared satellite imagery and an AMSR-E image show a significant increase in organization and intensity over the past 6 hours. A well defined microwave eye is evident in the AMSR-E pass with deep convection extending completely around the southern half of Mirinae.

Upper level analysis shows that the poleward outflow channel has linked with the mid-latitude trough to the north of Mirinae and has helped to fuel rapid intensification over the past 6 hours.

The influence from the trough on the poleward outflow will begin to diminish over the next 12 to 24 hours as the mid-latitude flow re-aligns and becomes more zonal.

TY 23W is expected to continue strengthening through TAU 72 prior to landfall with Luzon; decreasing as it tracks over Luzon into the South China Sea. Land interaction will slow Mirinae from TAU 72 through 120 as it tracks over Luzon, but the cyclone will see a slight increase in track speed upon re-entering the South China Sea.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, as of 8:00P.M. UTC on October 19th, 2008, Tropical Storm Bavi (23W) was located about 1102km (685mi) northeast of Chichi Jima, Japan (an island within the political boundaries of the city of Tokyo) moving north-northeast at about 48km/h (30mph) with a maximum significant wave height at 3.66m (12ft).

In the image on the left, as the storm moves away from Japan, we can see a small patch of green, partially obscured by clouds, which is the northeast tip of Hokkaido Island.

The storm is expected to strengthen slightly while accelerating towards the Northeast and completing extratropical transition with 12 hours. The JTWC has said that they will issue no further warnings regarding this storm, though the system will be closely monitored for signs of regeneration.
