Therefore, a turn to the left or right of its future track and changes in its wind speed must be anticipated from time to time.
14W has rapidly intensified from a weak disturbance to a depression in a span of 12 hours, thus the issuance of this advisory. Moderate to strong winds of up to 50 km/hr can be expected along the island of Hainan and along the Gulf of Tonkin today. 24-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 180 mm (light to moderate rain) can be expected along its outer and inner bands or over the Island of Hainan and the Gulf of Tonkin...with isolated amounts of up to 250 mm (heavy) near the center of 14W (Click here to view the latest NOAA's eTRaP graphic on the storm's rainfall amount).

EFFECTS & HAZARDS
Important Note: Please keep in mind that the above forecast outlook, extended forecast, effects-hazards, current monsoon intensity, & tropical cyclone watch changes every 6 to 12 hrs!
*TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 14W (FOURTEEN), LOCATED
APPROXIMATELY 40 NM SOUTH OF HAINAN, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD
AT 06 KNOTS DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES THAT CONVECTION HAS CONSOLIDATED AND INCREASED
DRAMATICALLY DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. A 041857Z AMSU-B MICROWAVE
IMAGE SHOWS A COMMA-SHAPED CONVECTIVE BAND FEEDING INTO THE LOW
LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). AN EARLIER ASCAT IMAGE CONFIRMS A
LARGE CYCLONIC WIND FIELD WITH NEAR GALE FORCE WINDS WITHIN THE
NORTHEASTERN QUADRANT. A VIGOROUS POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL HAS
DEVELOPED AND IS BEING ENHANCED BY AN UPPER LEVEL ANTICYCLONE JUST
SOUTH OF HAINAN ISLAND. THIS CHANNEL IS AIDING DEEP CONVECTION NEAR
THE SYSTEM CENTER. DESPITE THE COMMA PATTERN INDICATED ON A 042346Z
91 GHZ SSMIS IMAGE, CONFIDENCE IN THE EXACT POSITION OF THE LLCC IS
ONLY FAIR AS THE CIRCULATION IS EMBEDDED WITHIN THE MONSOON TROUGH.
INTENSITY ESTIMATES ARE BASED ON A COMBINATION OF SURFACE AND SHIP
OBSERVATIONS AND A PGTW DVORAK ESTIMATE OF 2.0...(more)
