Tropical Cyclone 07E (Frank)

FRANK FADING FAST WITH WINDS DOWN TO 50 MPH

Frank is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this general motion with a gradual bend northward is forecast over the next several days.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Continued weakening is forecast during the next several days, and Frank should become a post-tropical cyclone by tomorrow night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.

Tropical Cyclone 08E (Georgette)

POORLY ORGANIZED GEORGETTE DRIFTING NORTH-NORTHWESTWARD

A slow north-northeastward motion is expected to start tonight, and this motion should continue through Wednesday. A turn to the west along with an increase in forward speed is forecast to occur on Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next few days.

>>> Offshore of Southern Mexico:

An area of low pressure is expected to form a few hundred miles south of eastern Mexico in a few days.

Some development of this system is possible later this week while it moves west-northwestward.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent

>>> Well southwest of Southwest Mexico:

Another area of low pressure could form a several hundred miles south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula by mid-week.

Some development of this system is possible by late this week while the system moves westward over the open waters of the eastern Pacific basin.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent

 

Central Pacific:

There are no tropical cyclones, nor any areas of disturbed weather being investigated by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center at the time of this writing

 

Northwest and Southwest Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea:

Tropical Cyclone 07W (Trases) – Final Warning 

According to the JTWC Warning number 2, sustained winds were 25 knots with gusts to near 35 knots.

Animated multi-spectral satellite imagery shows the system has unraveled and stripped of all deep convection as it made landfall over the southwest coast of South Korea, just west of Wando.

Remnants of TD Trases is expected track off the west coast of South Korea before turning northeastward into North Korea around 12 hours.

Continued land interaction, high vertical wind shear, and the cool waters of the Yellow Sea will rapidly erode the system to dissipation by 12 hours.
