Tropical Depression Sarah and Ramon (PH NAMES) 20th November 2019

Tropical Depression ”Sarah” has now been named by PAGASA. The storm is only about 24-48hrs out from impacting Luzon and is rather close to Kalmaegi now located over Cagayan and the Luzon straight. Thanks to their close proximity Kalmaegi is more or less getting pulled north west towards northern Luzon. (Thus Southern Luzon and Visayas are out of the picture) Also this will help spread out the energy of the two storms thus keeping them relatively weak.

Take a look at the video below where I more or less explain this interaction taking place.

The impacts will mainly be the rainfall and the threat of flooding. Kalmaegi is currently bringing heavy rain showers across northern Luzon, that following Matmo and Nakri just over the past few weeks in the same area. In short it is very saturated and flooding and landslides could be a problem with the large amount of rainfall in the forecast.
