3-DAY FORECAST OUTLOOK & ANALYSIS*
TEMBIN (IGME) is expected to move slowly ESE to Eastward during the next 12 to 24 hours...turning ENE, NE to NNE during the next 36 to 72 hours. On the forecast track, the core of TEMBIN will re-enter PAR on late Monday evening and make landfall over Southern Taiwan on Tuesday morning. It will traverse Central and Eastern Taiwan throughout Tuesday and will move out of Taiwan through the northern coastline by early Wednesday morning. The u-turn track of TEMBIN is mainly due to the pull and interaction with Typhoon BOLAVEN which will dictate Tembin's motion.
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have increased to near 160 km/hr (85 knots) with higher gusts. Continued increase in strength will be expected during the next 24 hours...and will weaken upon making landfall over Southern Taiwan on Tuesday.
Typhoon Force Winds (118 km/hr or more) extend outward up to 65 kilometers (35 nautical miles) from the center...and Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-117 km/hr) extend outward up to 260 kilometers (140 nautical miles). TEMBIN is an average-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 555 kilometers (300 nautical miles) across.
The following is the summary of the 3-day forecast outlook on this system:
MONDAY MORNING: Completes its u-turn...starts moving east to ENE towards Southern Taiwan...about 385 km West of Basco, Batanes [11AM AUG 27: 20.6N 118.4E @ 185kph].
TUESDAY MORNING: Makes landfall over Southern Taiwan...near Kaohsiung District...about 150 km SSW of Hualien City, Taiwan [11AM AUG 28: 22.8N 120.9E @ 130kph].
WEDNESDAY MORNING: Weakens into a Tropical Storm as it moves out of Northern Taiwan towards the East China Sea...about 191 km NNE of Taipei, Taiwan [11AM AUG 29: 26.6N 122.3E @ 100kph].
*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.
