Tropical Depression 29W remains active, moving across the Malaysian Peninsula…into the Bay of Bengal

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 the system has maintained shallow and disorganized convection, which is obscuring a weak low level circulation.

Upper level analysis indicates the system is in an area of low 5-10 knot wind shear, with good radial outflow…along with warm sea surface temperatures. However, the proximity of the Malay Peninsula is cutting off moisture inflow, and inhibiting further development.

TS 29W is forecast to track northwest and weaken to near 20 knots as it makes landfall just south of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand. This will occur within 6-hours…then crossing the Malay Peninsula.

After 12 hours, the system enter the Andaman Sea and regain some strength…peaking again to near 30 knots. By 72 hours, TD 29W will dissipate over the Bay of Bengal. However, there’s a distinct possibility that the depression will not recover after it tracks the rugged terrain of the Malay Peninsula.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #7 were 25 knots with gusts of 35 knots.
