DOKSURI (DINDO) is expected to resume moving west-northwestward throughout the forecast period. On the forecast track, the core of Doksuri will traverse the mountainous terrain of Southern China and dissipate on Sunday morning.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) are near 75 km/hr (40 knots) with higher gusts. Rapid decrease in strength will be expected as the system continues to move over Southern China.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-100 km/hr) extend outward up to 130 kilometers (70 nautical miles) from the center. DOKSURI is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 445 kilometers (240 nautical miles).

The following is the summary of the 1-day forecast outlook on this system:

SUNDAY EARLY MORNING: Rapidly decaying over Southern China...just a remnant low [2AM JUN 01: 23.6N 108.0E @ 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:

DECAYING RAINBANDS - affecting & spreading across Southern China particularly Guangdong Province. 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, Hainan, Vietnam and Taiwan.

Tropical Disturbance 96W (LPA) continues to consolidate while over the Caroline Islands, hundreds of kilometers to the ESE of Palau. This new disturbance may become a Tropical Depression within the next 06 to 24 hours. Its developing center was located about 992 km SE of Palau or 1,835 km SE of Mindanao (6.7N 139.9E)...maximum sustained winds of 35 kph, moving WNW @ 26 kph towards Western Micronesia. The 24-hour TC Formation Potential remain HIGH (>50%).
