TYPHOON LUPIT [RAMIL/22W/0920]
T2K PUBLIC ADVISORY NUMBER 021

*Residents and visitors along Northern Luzon & Taiwan should closely monitor the progress of LUPIT (RAMIL).
*Kindly refer to your local warnings & bulletins issued by your country's official weather agency. This advisory is intended for additional information purposes only.
+ Forecast Outlook: LUPIT's forecast track has changed significantly with a much slower pace. The typhoon is now expected to decelerate as it tracks more WSW w/in the next 12 to 24 hours. Its wind speed will slightly strengthen back to Category 3 (185 kph) as it moves closer to Northern Luzon due to improved atmospheric conditions (warm ocean moisture & unstable air). The 2 to 5-day Long-Range Forecast shows LUPIT decelerating more as it approaches the northern coast of Cagayan on a WSW direction. LUPIT shall make landfall over the coast of Northern Ilocos Norte, near or over the town of Pagudpod early Sunday morning Oct 25 or approx. 2-3AM, & shall pass just to the north of Laoag City approx. 8-9 AM (Sun Oct 25). By early Monday morning, Oct 26, LUPIT shall be moving slowly across the South China Sea. *Alternate Forecast Scenario: There is a possibility that LUPIT might track Westward passing thru the Balintang Channel and spare Cagayan & Ilocos Norte from a direct hit, then move NW to Northward into Taiwan or SE China. This scenario is likely as some models deviates from the abovementioned forecast. The probability of this alternate forecast has increased, so a possible shift can happen. Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, so a turn to the left or right of its future track and other conditions must be considered.
+ Effects: LUPIT's Eyewall Replacement Cycle has ended, now shows a large eyewall, with still a cloud-filled EYE...its over-all circulation has slightly improved. Its outer & inner rain bands remains at sea...not yet affecting any major islands at this time. LUPIT may begin to affect Extreme Northern Luzon beginning tonight or tomorrow - if the forecast movement continues...

*THE CURRENT POSITION AND INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE
CONSISTENT WITH RECENT DVORAK SATELLITE FIXES FROM PGTW AND RJTD. TY
22W IS TRACKING WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF A
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE EXTENSION TO THE NORTH. DEEP CONVECTION HAS BECOME
MORE ORGANIZED NEAR THE STORM CENTER OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS, AND A
201709Z AMSU-B PASS INDICATES THAT A NEW LARGE EYEWALL HAS DEVELOPED
FOLLOWING A RECENT EYEWALL REPLACEMENT CYCLE. THE TRACK FORECAST FOR
TY 22W HAS BECOME MORE UNCERTAIN SINCE THE PREVIOUS FORECAST DUE TO
A SPLIT IN THE NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE. ONE SET OF MODEL SOLUTIONS,
INCLUDING THE JGSM, NOGAPS, GFDN, AND GFS, DEPICTS A SLOWDOWN AND
POLEWARD RECURVATURE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A STRENGTHENING
PERIPHERAL ANTICYCLONE TO THE SOUTHEAST OF THE STORM DURING THE NEXT
72 HOURS. THREE OF THESE MODEL SOLUTIONS, JGSM, NOGAPS, AND GFDN,
HAVE ABRUPTLY SHIFTED FROM THE PREVIOUS RUN. A SECOND SET OF
SOLUTIONS, INCLUDING THE ECMWF AND THE UKMET MODEL, SHOW THE TYPHOON
CONTINUING WESTWARD AS A NEW SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE BUILDS IN
FROM THE NORTHWEST. THIS SECOND SET OF SOLUTIONS IS CONSISTENT WITH
PREVIOUS MODEL GUIDANCE AND JTWC FORECASTS AND IS SUPPORTED BY
ANALYSIS OF A PERSISTENT SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST OF
TY 22W AND A ZONAL MIDLATITUDE FLOW PATTERN TO THE NORTH. THUS, THE
CURRENT FORECAST TRACK FAVORS THESE WESTWARD-RUNNING MODEL
SOLUTIONS. HOWEVER, A SIGNIFICANT SHIFT IN THE FORECAST MAY BE
NECESSARY IF MODEL GUIDANCE AND SYNOPTIC FEATURES CONTINUE TO SHIFT
IN FAVOR OF THE SLOWER MOTION SCENARIO. LOW VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND
FAVORABLE OCEAN HEAT CONTENT ARE EXPECTED TO SUPPORT INTENSIFICATION
DURING THE FORECAST PERIOD UNTIL THE SYSTEM MAKES LANDFALL OVER
