*TROPICAL STORM (TS) 10W (MALOU), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 55 NM
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF CHEJU ISLAND, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT
08 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWS TIGHTLY CURVED BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC WITH
DEEP CONVECTION BEING SHEARED NORTHEAST OF THE SYSTEM CENTER. THERE
IS POOR CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON A 052303Z 37H
SSMIS MICROWAVE PASS WHICH INDICATES MULTIPLE LOW LEVEL VORTICES MAY
STILL EXIST WITHIN THE BROAD CIRCULATION PATTERN. THE CURRENT
INTENSITY IS BASED ON DVORAK ESTIMATES RANGING FROM 35 TO 45 KNOTS
FROM PGTW, KNES, AND RJD, AS WELL AS SURFACE OBSERVATIONS ON CHEJU
ISLAND INDICATING INCREASING EASTERLY WINDS (23 KNOTS AT 00Z AND 27
KNOTS AT 01Z). UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS REVEALS THE SYSTEM HAS IMPROVED
EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED WITH AN UPPER LEVEL LOW TO THE SOUTH,
HOWEVER, INTERACTION WITH THE MID-LATITUDE WESTERLIES IS IMPINGING
OUTFLOW ALONG THE WESTERN FLANK OF THE SYSTEM AND CAUSING A MAJORITY
OF THE DEEP CONVECTION TO BE SHEARED TO THE NORTHEAST...(more)
