14W is expected to gradually slow down as it lingers off the Gulf of Tonkin for the next 24 to 48 hours. The system will dissipate along the Xuwen district in Western Guangdong or just to the north of Haikou City in Hainan Island on Thursday afternoon [2PM OCT 06: 20.1N 109.6E @ 55kph...2PM OCT 07: 20.2N 110.2E @ 35kph].
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 55 km/hr (30 knots) with higher gusts...slow weakening is expected through the next 2 days as unfavorable upper-level winds (aka. vertical wind shear) and land interaction affects 14W.
*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Extended Forecast Track have an average error of 250 km on Day 3...450 km on Day 4...and 650 km on Day 5, while the wind speed forecast error, averages 35 kph per day. 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.
ANALYSIS & FORECAST OUTLOOK (up to 24 hours)*
EFFECTS & HAZARDS
14W will continue to bring bad weather across Hainan Island...the Gulf of Tonkin...and Western Guangdong. Moderate to strong winds of up to 50 km/hr can be expected overnight (click here to view the latest NOAA-CIRA's Wind Analysis). 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).
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 210
NM NORTH-NORTHEAST OF HUE, VIETNAM, HAS TRACKED NORTHWARD AT 08 KNOTS
DURING THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES A WEAKENING, PARTIALLY-EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) WITH DEEP CONVECTION SHEARED OVER THE EASTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE. THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED ON
THE MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY, RECENT MICROWAVE IMAGERY AND CMA RADAR
IMAGERY. THE CURRENT INTENSITY REMAINS AT 30 KNOTS BASED ON A
050255Z ASCAT IMAGE SHOWING NUMEROUS 30 KNOT VECTORS OVER THE
NORTHWEST QUADRANT. SURFACE OBSERVATIONS FROM ZJHK, EAST OF THE
SYSTEM, INDICATE 090/20 KNOTS. THIS FORECAST REFLECTS A SIGNIFICANT
CHANGE FROM THE FIRST WARNING WITH SLOWER TRACK SPEEDS AND A
PEAK INTENSITY OF 30 KNOTS. TD 14W IS CURRENTLY STRUGGLING DUE TO
MODERATE VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (20 KNOTS) AND LAND INTERACTION. VWS
IS STRONG TO THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST DUE TO MODERATE LOW-LEVEL
NORTHEASTERLY FLOW, ASSOCIATED WITH A 1021 MB HIGH OVER EASTERN
CHINA, AND UPPER-LEVEL WESTERLY FLOW OF 40-50 KNOTS OVER SOUTHEAST
CHINA AS INDICATED ON THE LATEST 200/300MB ANALYSES. THEREFORE, TD
14W IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SLOWLY NORTH TO NORTHEASTWARD UNDER A WEAK
STEERING ENVIRONMENT THROUGH TAU 48 AND SHOULD DISSIPATE BETWEEN
TAU 36 AND 48. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY THAT THE SYSTEM MAY
WEAKEN EARLIER AND EITHER REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY OR DRIFT
WESTWARD DUE TO THE LOW-LEVEL NORTHEASTERLIES. THE AVAILABLE
DYNAMIC MODEL TRACKERS/GUIDANCE SUPPORT THIS FORECAST WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF WBAR, WHICH ACCELERATES THE SYSTEM TOWARD HONG KONG
INTO THE AFOREMENTIONED LOW-LEVEL RIDGE/STRONG VWS...(more)
