Severe Tropical Storm Rai (known locally in the Philippines as Odette) is tracking west-northwestward in the Philippine Sea late December 14. As of 21:00 PWT, the storm’s center of circulation was approximately 133 km (83 miles) north of Koror, Palau. Forecast models indicate the system will pass northwest of Palau into Dec. 15 and strengthen into a typhoon as it continues to track west-northwestward towards the Philippines, making landfall over Eastern Visayas late December 16. The system will track across the central Philippines through December 17, affecting much of Luzon and Mindanao to the north and south as well, making further landfall over parts of Central and Eastern Visayas and Mimaropa regions December 16-17. Having passed over the Philippines, the storm system is projected to maintain typhoon strength as it tracks in a more northwestward direction towards Vietnam. Some uncertainty remains in the track and intensity forecast, and changes could occur over the next few days.
