14W is expected to slowly weaken and dissipate while along the coast of Northern Hainan or off the South China Sea today until the early morning of Friday [2AM OCT 07: 20.4N 110.8E @ 55kph...2AM OCT 08: 20.5N 111.6E @ 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 within 24 to 48 hours. Moderate to strong winds of up to 50 km/hr can be expected within the bands of 14W (click here to view the latest NOAA-CIRA's Wind Analysis). 18-hr total rainfall amounts of 5 up to 50 mm (light rain) can be expected along its outer and inner bands...with isolated amounts of up to 125 mm (moderate) 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, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 270 NM WEST-
SOUTHWEST OF HONG KONG, CHINA, HAS TRACKED NORTHEASTWARD AT 05 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. DURING THE PAST 18 HOURS, TD 14W CROSSED
OVER HAINAN ISLAND WITHOUT WEAKENING SIGNIFICANTLY. ITS PROXIMITY TO
THE LEIZHOU PENINSULA ON THE POLEWARD SIDE AND HAINAN ISLAND ON THE
EQUATORWARD SIDE IS EXPECTED TO LIMIT ITS DEVELOPMENT DURING THE
SHORT TERM DESPITE ITS RETURN TO AN OVER-WATER TRACK. FROM TAU 24
THROUGH TAU 48, THE SYSTEM IS MOVING INTO A ZONE OF INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS), WITH VWS INCREASING TO OVER 30 KNOTS
POLEWARD OF HAINAN ISLAND. ANIMATED WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES
THAT THE EXCELLENT POLEWARD OUTFLOW CHANNEL THAT HAD BEEN SUSTAINING
THE SYSTEM EVEN AS IT MADE AN OVER-LAND TRACK IS SHOWING THE EARLY
SIGNS OF SUPRESSION IN ADVANCE OF A BUILDING UPPER LEVEL RIDGE. IN
THE LOWER LEVELS, A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM SETTLING NEAR SHANGHAI IS
PUMPING MODIFIED CONTINENTAL POLAR AIR INTO THE TAIWAN STRAIT, WHICH
WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME ABSORBED INTO THE BOUNDARY LAYER AS TD 14W
MOVES TOWARD THE ZONE OF NORTHEASTERLY FLOW. THE RESULTING
COMBINATION OF VWS IN THE UPPER LEVELS COUPLED WITH THE INFLOW OF
COOLER AND DRIER AIR INTO THE BOUNDARY LAYER IS EXPECTED TO CAP OFF
DEVELOPMENT OF TD 14W BETWEEN TAU 24 AND TAU 48...(more)
