DOKSURI (DINDO) is expected to resume moving west-northwestward throughout the forecast period. On the forecast track, the core of Doksuri will make landfall along the coast of Guangdong Province just west of Hong Kong on Saturday, and will completely dissipate near the Vietnam-China Border on Sunday.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 85 km/hr (45 knots) with higher gusts. Some increase in strength will be expected as the system approaches the coast of Southern China. DOKSURI will start losing strength once it moves in land Saturday through Sunday.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 140 kilometers (75 nautical miles) from the center. DOKSURI is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 815 kilometers (440 nautical miles).

The following is the summary of the 2-day forecast outlook on this system:

SATURDAY MORNING: Reaches its peak wind intensity as the system makes landfall over Southern China [8AM JUN 30: 21.5N 111.7E @ 100kph].
SUNDAY MORNING: Just an area of low pressure as it dissipates near the China-Vietnam Border [8AM JUL 01: 23.3N 107.1E @ 35kph].

*Please be reminded that the Forecast Outlook changes every 6 hours, and the Day 3 Forecast Track have an average error of 250 km...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.


Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas:

RAINBANDS - over water (South China Sea)...not affecting any land areas...but expected to reach Southern China later this afternoon or evening. Cloudy/Rainy Conditions w/ moderate to strong winds (<62 kph) will be expected along these bands (click here to know more about Rainbands).
24HR TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATION - from 5 up to 200 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 201 to 400 mm (very high) along areas near the center of Doksuri (Dindo). (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 1-3 ft [0.3-0.9 m] above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves can be expected along the coastal, inland lakes and beach front areas of Southern China. Very minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the rest of the beach-front areas of Western Luzon.

Tropical Disturbance 96W (LPA) developing over the Caroline Islands, hundreds of kilometers to the SSW of Guam. This new disturbance may become a Tropical Depression within the next 12 to 24 hours. Its developing center was located about 992 km SE of Palau or 1,835 km SE of Mindanao (3.7N 142.7E)...maximum sustained winds of 35 kph, moving WNW @ 07 kph towards Western Micronesia. The 24-hour TC Formation Potential is HIGH (>50%).
