Update 4: Nalgae heading across south-central Luzon, appears as if it might remain in South China Sea. ()

8:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, Japan time: More and more, Tropical Storm Nalgae appears as if it might confine itself to the South China Sea in the long term, remaining well southwest of Okinawa in the coming days. Storm Tracker will continue to keep an eye on it.

At 3 a.m., Nalgae was about 175 miles east of Metro Manila, headed west-northwest at 22 mph, packing 63-mph sustained winds and 81-mph gusts at center.

If Nalgae stays on present heading, Joint Typhoon Warning Center projects it to move across south-central Luzon, pass almost directly over Clark International Airport at about 8 p.m. Saturday, exit into the South China Sea early Sunday and curve north toward southeastern China in the coming days.
