3 p.m. Monday, April 6, Philippines time: Maysak diminished as it crossed north-central Luzon island on Easter Sunday and is now dying out over the South China Sea, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center posted early this morning in its final bulletin on Maysak. Hundreds of miles east-southeast, Haishen remains on a quasi-stationary trajectory and is forecast to creep northwest. But it’s in an area of high vertical wind shear, which tropical weather systems of any sort do not like, and is also forecast to dissipate well before reaching land. Unless there’s a drastic change to either system, PST takes leave of them.
5 p.m. Sunday, April 5, Philippines time: It’s a rainy, blustery Easter Sunday in north-central Luzon as Tropical Storm Maysak makes its way across the Philippines’ northernmost island, losing strength every step of the way, maintaining 40-mph sustained winds and 52-mph gusts as it makes its way northwest at 11 mph. Maysak is forecast to exit Luzon sometime early Sunday evening. All Public Storm Warning Signals have been canceled, according to the Philippines’ weather authority PAGASA Web site.
