STS Mawar (Ambo) Video Update

Here is my video update for Mawar (Bagyong Ambo) as it continues to intensify east of Luzon. We have analysis, signal warnings, and forecasts for the storm. Please do note that the winds mentioned here are from JTWC and thus uses the 1-min wind standard. For JTWC, Mawar is now a typhoon but since JMA–which is the OFFICIAL agency in the Pacific–is using the 10-min standard, Mawar is only a Severe Tropical Storm with winds of 55kt gusting to 80kt.
