Latest satellite imagery shows numerous squalls have intensified in a region between 03S and 08S and from 117W to 121W. The heavier squalls appear to be confined north of 06S. However, a few squalls have shifted s'ward of the heavier cluster while weakening between 07S and 09S and along approximately 120W in the past 1-2 hours. The majority of the squalls will continue to move slowly w'ward at 5-10kts although more squalls could develop to the east of this initial cluster over the next 24 hours.
Expect locally higher winds/swells in/near the squalls. Otherwise, the forecast sent on the 12th outside of the squalls remains valid.
