3-DAY FORECAST OUTLOOK & ANALYSIS*
TEMBIN (IGME) is expected to move slowly East to ENE during the next 12 to 24 hours...turning NE to NNE within 36 to 48 hours...then Northward by 72 hours. On the forecast track, the core of TEMBIN will re-enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by late Monday evening and make landfall over Southern Taiwan on Tuesday morning. It will traverse Southern 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 its motion.
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have increased to near 185 km/hr (100 knots) with higher gusts. A decrease in strength will be expected during the next 2 to 3 days.
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 AFTERNOON: Completes its u-turn...starts moving east to ENE towards Southern Taiwan...about 385 km West of Basco, Batanes [5PM AUG 27: 20.6N 118.4E @ 175kph].
TUESDAY AFTERNOON: Traversing Eastern Taiwan...approaching Hualien City...about 30 km SW of the city...weakens rapidly [5PM AUG 28: 23.8N 121.4E @ 130kph].
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Weakens into a Tropical Storm as it moves across the East China Sea...approaching Metropolitan Shanghai in Eastern China [5PM AUG 29: 27.7N 122.2E @ 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.
EFFECTS & HAZARDS SUMMARY
Below is the summary of the storm's parts and its hazards affecting specific areas. You can also view this image link for you to understand the parts.
CLOUD-FILLED EYE - over water (West Philippine Sea). Possible calm and lull conditions (with <20 kph winds) will be expected inside the eye (click here to know more about the EYE).
EYEWALL - over water (West Philippine Sea)...not affecting any land areas. Typhoon Conditions with Typhoon Force Winds (>118 kph) will be expected within this wall (click here to know more about the Eyewall).
INNER RAINBANDS - over water (West Philippine Sea)...not 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 coastal areas of Ilocos Provinces, Southwestern Taiwan, Southern and Southeastern China. Cloudy/Rainy Conditions with 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 500 mm (high to very high) along areas near the center of Tembin (Igme) (click to open NOAA's eTRaP graphic).
COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 9-12 ft [2.7-3.9 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 Southeastern China, Southern & Western Taiwan. Moderate 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 Extreme Northern Luzon, Southeastern China and the rest of Taiwan (click here to know more about Storm Surge).
