REMARKS (for Meteorologists): 2 PM (06 GMT) TUE 26 JULY POSITION: 14.1N 123.3E.
*TROPICAL STORM (TS) 10W (NOCK-TEN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 137 NM
EAST-SOUTHEAST OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT
05 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY
SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED DEPTH AROUND ITS CENTRAL CONVECTION
EVEN AS IT APPROACHES SOUTHERN LUZON. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED
ON THE ABOVE ANIMATION AND TRIANGULATED FROM NEARBY OBSERVATIONS
WITH FAIR CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS SUPPORTED BY SAME
OBSERVATIONS AND BY DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND RJTD
RANGING FROM 30 TO 40 KNOTS. UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES THE
STORM IS JUST TO THE SOUTHWEST OF A TROUGH THAT IS HAVING A
SUBSIDENT EFFECT OVER THE NORTHEAST FLANK OF THE SYSTEM. HOWEVER, A
RIDGE AXIS TO THE SOUTH IS ENHANCING EQUATORWARD OUTFLOW. THESE
DYNAMICS ARE EVIDENT ON WATER VAPOR SATELLITE ANIMATION. VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR (VWS) VALUES ARE LIGHT TO MODERATE (10-2O KTS). TS 10W IS
TRACKING ALONG THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF A DEEP-LAYERED SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE ANCHORED TO THE EAST OF JAPAN. IT IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
ALONG THIS TRACK AS IT MAKES LANDFALL NEAR LEGASPI CITY, THEN DRAGS
OVER ROUGH TERRAIN JUST NORTH OF MANILA, BEFORE EXITING INTO THE
SOUTH CHINA SEA AFTER TAU 24. THE SYSTEM WILL GRADUALLY REINTENSIFY
OVER WARM WATERS AND FAVORABLE VWS BEFORE MAKING A SECONDARY
LANDFALL - THIS TIME OVER HAINAN AFTER TAU 72. TS NOCK-TEN WILL
MOMENTARILY INTENSIFY OVER THE GULF OF TONKIN TOWARDS THE END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD. THE AVAILABLE NUMERICAL GUIDANCE IS IN TIGHT
AGREEMENT WITH THE SOLE EXCEPTION OF NOGAPS THAT IS ERRONEOUSLY
DEFLECTING THE VORTEX NORTHWESTWARD DURING THE FIRST 36 HOURS. THIS
TRACK FORECAST IS SLOWER AND TO THE SOUTH OF CONSENSUS DURING THAT
TIME FRAME...(more info)
