Tropical Cyclone 29W (Pakhar) – Final Warning

According to JTWC Warning number 9, sustained winds were 25 knots, with gusts to 35 knots.

Animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery shows the system has become difficult to identify and pinpoint its location as it has become more elongated and embedded in the tail end of a stationary frontal boundary in the Philippine Sea. The associated convection has become more linear, fragmented, and shallow.

The remnants of TD 29W are expected to open into a wave and slowly drift back toward the southwest with the trade wind flow, but is not forecast to re-intensify.
