Here’s a near real time wind profile for this tropical storm

According to the JTWC, marginal environmental conditions, including warm sea surface temperatures and moderate poleward outflow, will allow for TS 04W to maintain an intensity of 35 knots through the next 24 hours.

Beyond 24 hours, strong wind shear along with cooler sea surface temperatures will cause TS 04W to weaken and dissipate within 48 hours.

Maximum sustained surface winds as of the JTWC Warning #5 are estimated at 35 knots…with gusts to 45
