Here’s a satellite image of this system, along with a looping satellite image…and what the computer models are showing

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center reports that satellite images show rapidly decaying deep convection over an exposed low level circulation center.

Upper level conditions are favorable, with low 5-10 knot wind shear, with good poleward outflow.

TS 29W is forecast to track west-northwest as it strengthens slightly…to near 30 knots under favorable conditions until it makes landfall over the Malay Peninsula. Thereafter, it is expected to slowly re-intensify as it transits the Andaman Sea.

After 72 hours, TD 29W will slow, as it encounters a weakening steering influence.

The system is forecast to significantly strengthen to a peak intensity of 65 knots (typhoon level) by the 120 hour mark.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #3 were 25 knots with gusts of 35 knots.
