*ANIMATED INFRARED IMAGERY
INDICATES FLARING CONVECTION OVER THE SYSTEM CENTER DUE TO DIURNAL
EFFECTS, HOWEVER, THIS CONVECTION CONTINUES TO BE SHEARED TO THE
SOUTHWEST DUE TO UPPER LEVEL NORTHEASTERLY FLOW. THERE IS FAIR
CONFIDENCE IN THE POSTION BASED ON A 141751Z 89 GHZ AMSRE MICROWAVE
IMAGE, WHICH ALSO SHOWS TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER. THE CURRENT INTENSITY IS ASSESSED
AT 50 KNOTS BASED ON DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY VALUES RANGING FROM 45
TO 55 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT TS 03W IS TRACKING
ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE ENTRENCHED OVER CHINA AND WILL ENCOUNTER INCREASED (>30 KNOTS)
NORTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AS IT CONTINUEES TRACKING
WESTWARD. THIS FORECAST TRACKS TS 03W SLIGHTLY MORE TO THE WEST THAN
THE PREVIOUS FORECAST, BASED ON THE MORE ZONAL ORIENTATION OF THE
STEERING RIDGE THAN PREVIOUSLY EXPECTED. TS 03W IS FORECAST TO
WEAKEN NEAR TAU 36 AS IT CROSSES OVER HAINAN AND IS FORECAST TO
DISIPATE AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER NORTHERN VIETNAM BY
TAU 72. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY CLUSTERED. THIS FORECAST
IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH MODEL CONSENSUS THROUGH TAU 48, BUT
DEVIATES SLIGHTLY TO THE WEST OF THE CONSENSUS THEREAFTER IN
ANTICIPATION OF A MORE ZONAL STEERING PATTERN...(more)
