24-HOUR FORECAST OUTLOOK & ANALYSIS*
KULAP (NONOY) is expected to track north-northwestward during the next 12 hours...with a sharp northerly to north-northeasterly turn thereafter. On the forecast track, the remnants of the depression will pass over Cheju Island later tonight...and dissipate along the southern shores of South Korea.
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) remain near 45 km/hr (25 knots) with higher gusts. KULAP is a weak Tropical Depression (TD) on the Saffir-Simpson Tropical Cyclone Scale. This system will eventually dissipate within 12 to 24 hours.
The following is the summary of the 24-hour forecast outlook on this system:
SATURDAY EVENING: Weakened into an area of low pressure (Tropical Disturbance) as it approaches Cheju Island...about 89 km to the south [8PM SEP 10: 32.7N 126.6 @ 35kph].
SUNDAY MORNING: Dissipated along the shores of South Korea...about 113 km NNE of Cheju Island [8AM SEP 11: 34.5N 126.8E @ 30kph].
*Please be reminded that the 24-hour Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and 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.
EFFECTS & HAZARDS SUMMARY
KULAP's (NONOY) circulation currently dissipating w/ most of its raincloud-convection sheared to the north of the low-level center. Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:
. DISSIPATING RAINBANDS - affecting & spreading across Cheju Island and the Southern portion of South Korea. Tropical Depression Conditions w/ moderate to strong winds (25-61 kph) will be expected along these bands (click here to know more about Rainbands).
24HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 100 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 105 to 180 mm (low to high) along areas near the center of KULAP. (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
TROPICAL CYCLONE WATCH
Tropical Disturbance 91W (LPA) still disorganized as it moves westward across the Western Pacific...will likely develop into a Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 to 48 hours. The system was located about 715 km NNW of Guam, CNMI (19.2N 141.9E)...maximum sustained winds of 30 kph...moving West @ 20 kph. The 24-hour TC Formation Potential is now HIGH (60%).

JTWC (US NAVY & AIR FORCE) REMARKS:
REMARKS (for Meteorologists): 8 AM (00 GMT) SAT 10 SEPTEMBER POSITION: 31.2N 127.4E.
*TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 17W, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF CHEJU-DO, KOREA, HAS TRACKED NORTHWESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
(MSI) INDICATES THAT TD 17W HAS BEGUN TO INTERACT WITH THE FRONTAL
ZONE POSITIONED JUST TO THE NORTH OVER SOUTH KOREA. THE LOW-LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC) IS PARTIALLY-EXPOSED WITH DEEP CONVECTION
LIMITED TO THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT AND COLD-AIR STRATOCUMULUS IS
ADVECTING INTO THE WESTERN PERIPHERY OF THE LLCC. A 092306Z TRMM 37
GHZ IMAGE INDICATES THAT CONVECTIVE BANDING HAS BECOME MORE
FRAGMENTED. THE LLCC IS LOCATED UNDER THE UPPER-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE (STR) WITH MODERATE (20 KNOTS) SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND
SHEAR (VWS). THE CURRENT INTENSITY REMAINS ASSESSED AT 25 KNOTS,
HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS IT TRACKS NORTHWARD
INTO INCREASING VWS (30-50 KNOTS) ASSOCIATED WITH STRONG
SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AND A JET OVER THE KOREAN PENINSULA. TD 17W IS
FORECAST TO RE-CURVE NORTHWARD AROUND THE WESTERN EXTENT OF THE LOW-
LEVEL STR TOWARD SOUTH KOREA BUT SHOULD DISSIPATE WITHIN THE NEXT 12
HOURS. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON
WARNING CENTER (NAVMARFCSTCEN). THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONI-
TORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION...(more info)
