>> September 14-18, 2004

Pablo: a local name contributed by PAGASA.

This system was considered a tropical depression by JMA, PAGASA, the CWB of Taiwan and the Thai Meteorological Department with PAGASA assigning the name Pablo. JTWC released no warnings, but issued a TCFA at 16/2030 UTC and a second alert 24 hours later. However, the formation alert was cancelled at 18/2100 UTC. Tropical Depression Pablo formed deep in the Philippine Sea east of Mindanao, moved west- ward across that island, thence turning northwestward and emerging into the South China Sea near the Calamian Group. After crossing the Philippine Archipelago the depression began to slowly weaken but limped across the South China Sea to near the central Vietnamese coastline before dissipating on the 18th. The maximum winds estimated by any agency were 30 kts. Following is a very brief report of some rainfall observations compiled and sent by Huang Chunliang.
