Tropical Storm Doksuri (international designation: 1206, JTWC designation: 07W, PAGASA Name: Dindo) was a Tropical Storm which affected the Philippines, and impacted southern China.
On June 25, the Japan Meteorological Agency started to monitor a tropical depression that had developed embedded within a monsoon trough about Template:Convert/km to the southeast of Manilla in the Philippines. During that day the depression moved north-westwards and consolidated further, before early the next day the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration started to monitor it as Tropical Depression Dindo. Later that day the JMA reported that the depression had developed into a tropical storm, and named it Doksuri, before the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre started to issue warnings on the system and designated it as Tropical Depression 07W.
Late on the same day, the JTWC upgraded Doksuri to a tropical storm. On June 27, Doksuri’s low-level circulation center became exposed due to moderate easterly wind shear. On June 28, the JTWC downgraded Doksuri to a tropical depression, as the system’s exposed circulation center began to underwent a usual circulation center replacement cycle, which involves a circulation center to be replaced by another new circulation center. Late on the same day, Doksuri made landfall over Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. During June 30, the JMA reported that Doksuri had weakened into a tropical depression, before reporting that the depression had dissipated later that day.
Preparations and impact
The Philippines closely monitored the low that would later become Doksuri. When Doksuri becomes a storm and nears the coastline of Luzon, the PAGASA raised public storm warning signal numbers 1 and 2 on Northern Luzon provinces and the Batanes, Babuyan and Calayan Group of Islands. PAGASA also firmly notified that the southwest monsoon enhanced by Doksuri would affect the Western section of Luzon, Visayas, and Palawan Island, including Metro Manila. Storm warning signals lasted until Doksuri left the Philippine Area of Responsibility.
Even though Doksuri didn't made landfall along mainland Luzon, it nevertheless brought heavy rains along the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, and Ilocos Norte. This is because thunderstorms are concentrated mainly to the south of the center. Southwest monsoon enhanced by Doksuri also caused heavy rainfall along Metro Manila, leading to floods in easily-flooded streets and traffic congestion during this period. Overall, minimal damage is attributed to Doksuri.
On June 29, the HKO issued the No.8 Strong Wind signal as the system was located 100 kilometers from Hong Kong.
Within Macau, some minor damage was reported to chimneys.
Doksuri caused no major damage within Guangdong.
