*TROPICAL STORM (TS) 10W (MALOU), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 110 NM
SOUTH OF CHEJU ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE
PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE (IR) IMAGERY CONTINUES
TO SHOW MULTIPLE LOW LEVEL VORTICES CYCLONICALLY ROTATING INTO THE
MAIN AREA OF DEEP CONVECTION. IR SATELLITE IMAGERY, AS WELL AS A
051717Z TRMM 85 GHZ MICROWAVE PASS, AND A 061726Z AMSU 89 GHZ
MICROWAVE PASS, REVEAL A MAJORITY OF THE DEEP CONVECTION IS BEING
SHEARED TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE MAIN LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON
THE LOW LEVEL CENTER EVIDENT IN THESE MICROWAVE IMAGES. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 45 KNOTS
FROM PGTW, RJTD, AND KNES. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS SHOWS ENHANCED
POLEWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH A MID-LATITUDE TROUGH TO THE NORTH
OF THE SYSTEM. TS 10W IS CURRENTLY TRACKING POLEWARD ALONG THE
WESTERN EXTENT OF A LOW-TO MID LEVEL SUBTROPICAL STEERING RIDGE. TS
10W IS FORECAST TO TRACK ACROSS CHEJU ISLAND AND INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY
DUE TO FAVORABLE OUTFLOW CONDITIONS. NEAR TAU 24, TS 10W WILL MAKE
LANDFALL IN SOUTHWESTERN SOUTH KOREA AND WEAKEN AS IT BEGINS TO BE
ABSORBED INTO THE BAROCLINIC BOUNDARY. BY TAU 48, TS MALOU IS
FORECAST TO COMPLETE EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION. NUMERICAL MODEL
GUIDANCE IS IN FAIR AGREEMENT, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GFDN AND NOGAPS
WHICH TRACK THE SYSTEM ERRONEOUSLY NORTHWESTWARD AND POLEWARD,
RESPECTIVELY, IN THE LATER TAUS. THIS FORECAST IS IN GOOD AGREEMENT
WITH MODEL CONSENSUS...(more)
