Tropical Depression 30W remains active, moving across the South China Sea towards Hainan Island, China…then Vietnam

Here’s a looping satellite image…and what the computer models are showing

According to the JTWC, satellite imagery depicts a consolidating low level circulation center, with convective bands wrapping into the center.

Upper level analysis indicates a favorable environment, with low wind shear and near-radial outflow. The system is expected to intensify significantly while passing over the South China Sea…with favorable environmental conditions persisting.

The models differ after 72 hours, although the JTWC favors a slow poleward motion over Hainan Island.

Maximum sustained winds as of the JTWC Warning #4 were 35 knots with gusts of 45 knots.
