*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

JTWC (US NAVY & AIR FORCE) REMARKS:
REMARKS (for Meteorologists): 2 AM (18 GMT) SAT 10 SEPTEMBER POSITION: 30.4N 127.5E.
*TROPICAL DEPRESSION (TD) 17W, LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 195 NM SOUTH-
SOUTHEAST OF CHEJU-DO, KOREA, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 14
KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES LIMITED DEEP CONVECTION PERSISTING OVER THE WESTERN SEMI-
CIRCLE OF THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 091709Z AMSR-E
36 GHZ IMAGE INDICATES A WELL-DEFINED LLCC WITH CURVED BANDING
WRAPPING INTO THE SOUTH QUADRANT. THE LLCC IS LOCATED UNDER THE
UPPER-LEVEL SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) WITH MODERATE (20 KNOTS)
SOUTHEASTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). THE 091211Z ASCAT IMAGE
INDICATE 15-20 KNOT WINDS WHILE SURFACE OBSERVATIONS ALONG THE
PERIPHERY OF THE LLCC SHOW 10-15 KNOT WINDS WITH SLP VALUES RANGING
FROM 1010-1013 MB. DESPITE THIS DATA, THE CURRENT INTENSITY REMAINS
25 KNOTS, LARGELY DUE TO THE DEFINED SIGNATURE ON THE AMSR-E IMAGE
AND DVORAK ESTIMATES OF 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 BETWEEN TAU 12 TO TAU 24...(more info)
