Here’s a near real-time wind profile of TC 01W

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite images show the central convection has dispersed and or collapsed, as the low level circulation unraveled.

This has occurred as the the system dragged across the rugged Visayan Island chain…and at the same time encountered strong 25-30 knot wind shear aloft.

Data indicated that TC 01W has weakened below JTWC warning criteria…thus the Final Warning has been issued.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #7 were 20 knots with gusts of 30 knots.
