+ Forecast Outlook: CONSON (BASYANG) is now expected to pass over the Resort City of Sanya @ 5PM HKT today and make landfall along the southwestern part of Hainan Island (China) tonight [2PM JUL 16: 17.9N 110.1E-140kph.
+ Effects & Hazards: CONSON's (BASYANG) circulation is now starting to affect Hainan and Vietnam. Its inner (rain) bands now just off the southern coast of Hainan...while its outer (feeder) bands is spreading across Hainan Island and Eastern Vietnam. Moderate to strong winds (40-60 kph) w/ occasional to widespread rains can be expected along its outer bands...while along its inner bands - strong winds (60-100 kph) w/ widespread rains is possible.6-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 100 mm (light, moderate to heavy rain) can be expected along the outer and inner rainbands...
+ Current ITCZ Intensity: STRONG >> Mostly cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rains w/ thunderstorms can be expected along the following affected areas: BICOL, QUEZON, AND NORTHERN VISAYAS. Possible landslides, mudslides, mudflows (lahars) and life-threatening flash floods are likely to occur along steep mountain/volcanic slopes, river banks, low-lying & flood-prone areas of the affected areas.

*THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO A TYPHOON BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES
OF 65 TO 77 KNOTS FROM KNES, PGTW, AND RJTD, AS WELL AS A PARTIAL
151615Z 37 GHZ TRMM MICROWAVE PASS INDICATING A MICROWAVE EYE
FEATURE WITH TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER. THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE POSITION BASED
ON A 151806Z 89 GHZ AMSU IMAGE DEPICTING A BANDING EYE FEATURE.
UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THAT A MIDLATITUDE TROUGH PASSING
OVER NORTHEASTERN CHINA AND A TROPICAL UPPER TROPOSHPHERIC TROUGH
(TUTT) CELL OVER LUZON HAVE CAUSED A WEAKENING IN THE NORTHEASTERLY
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS) OVER THE SOUTH CHINA SEA ALLOWING THE
SYSTEM TO INTENSIFY TO TYPHOON STRENGTH. TY 03W IS CURRENTLY
TRACKING WESTWARD ALONG AN EXTENSION OF THE LOW- TO MID-LEVEL
SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE ANCHORED OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND IS
FORECAST TO CONTINUE ALONG THIS TRACK, SKIRTING SOUTHERN HAINAN
BETWEEN TAU 12 AND TAU 24, THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD. OVER THE
NEXT 12 HOURS, TY 03W IS FORECAST TO REACH A PEAK INTENSITY OF 75
KNOTS AS IT CONTINUES TO TRACK OVER AN AREA OF MODERATE (20 TO 25
KNOTS) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND WARM SSTS. NEAR TAU 24 THE SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN DUE TO LAND INTERACTION WITH THE
MOUNTAINS IN SOUTHERN HAINAN AND INCREASED NORTHEASTERLY VERTICAL
WINDSHEAR OVER THE GULF OF TONKIN. BETWEEN TAU 36 AND TAU 48 TY 03W
IS EXPECTED TO MAKE LANDFALL NEAR HANOI, VIETNAM. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF TCLAPS AND GFDN
WHICH ERRONEOUSLY DRIVE THE SYSTEM INTO THE STEERING RIDGE.
THEREFORE, THIS FORECAST FAVORS A TRACK SLIGHTLY WEST OF MODEL
