3-DAY FORECAST OUTLOOK & ANALYSIS*
TEMBIN (IGME) is expected to continue moving ENE during the next 12 to 24 hours...turning North to NNE-ward within the next 36 to 72 hours. On the forecast track, the core of TEMBIN will re-enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) late tonight and make landfall over the Southern tip of Taiwan on Tuesday morning. It will traverse the Southern and Eastern Shoreline of Taiwan throughout Tuesday and will move into the East China Sea Wednesday morning. By Thursday morning, TEMBIN will pass along the shoreline of Eastern China, just to the east of Metropolitan Shanghai.
Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) have decreased to near 150 km/hr (80 knots) with higher gusts. Continued decrease in strength will be expected during the next 2 to 3 days...and TEMBIN (IGME) will weaken into a Tropical Storm (TS) on late Wednesday or Thursday.
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 250 kilometers (135 nautical miles). TEMBIN is an average-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 555 kilometers (300 nautical miles) across.
