MAWAR will continue moving fast, ENE-ward for the next 12 to 24 hours.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have decreased rapidly to near 100 km/hr (55 knots) with higher gusts. MAWAR will continue to decay as it moves into cooler sea-surface temperatures (SSTs) and unfavorable upper-level environment of the NW Pacific Ocean. The system will become an Extratropical Cyclone early Thursday.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 km/hr) extend outward up to 250 kilometers (135 nautical miles) from the center. MAWAR is an averaged-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 760 kilometers (410 nautical miles).

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

THURSDAY EARLY MORNING: Attains Extratropical status...accelerating ENE-ward across the open seas to the south of Kuril Islands [2AM JUN 07: 38.4N 150.5E @ 85kph].

*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:

INNER RAINBANDS - over water (Northwest Pacific Ocean) longer affecting any land areas. Tropical Storm Conditions with Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 kph) will be expected along these bands.
OUTER RAINBANDS - affecting & spreading across the Coastal areas of Southern Japan. 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 100 mm (low to high rainfall) can be expected along areas affected by the outer & inner rainbands (see above)...with isolated amounts of 101 to 200 mm (high) along areas near the center of MAWAR (AMBO). (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 Japan. Very minimal damage is likely on this type of storm surge. Danger from Rip Currents or Rip Tides can be expected along the beach-front areas of Japan.
