Typhoon Noul is currently moving west and will veer westnorthwest, then later northwest. It is predicted that the storm will steadily intensify to 125 knots over the next 3 days. The projected trajectory will see Noul pass northeast of the Philippine Islands, whilst veering north towards Taiwan.
Noul is currently located approximately 933 nautical miles east-southeast of Manila and is tracking west-northwest at 8 knots over the past six hours. The maximum wave height measured is 26 feet with maximum sustained winds of 75 knots gusting to 90. On the Saffir-Simpson scale this would be equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane.
This is the 15th warning from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center and the next warning is expected at 6:00 pm EDT, 2100 GMT.
