Tropical Cyclone 07E (Frank)
FRANK SHOULD WEAKEN BELOW HURRICANE STRENGTH TONIGHT
Frank is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general motion is forecast to continue for the next couple of days.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts. Steady weakening is expected during the next few days, and Frank is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone by late Tuesday or Tuesday night.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km).

Tropical Cyclone 06W (Songda) – Final Warning
According to the JTWC Warning number 13, sustained winds were 25 knots with gusts to near 35 knots.
Animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery depicts an exposed low level circulation (llc) with rapidly eroding deep convection that is decoupled from the llc and stretched poleward.
TD 06W is in an unfavorable environment with strong poleward outflow offset by moderate (15-20 knot) vertical wind shear and cooling sea surface temperatures in the Yellow Sea.
TD Songda will track northeastward along the northwestern periphery of the ridge. The unfavorable environment will continue to erode the system and cause its dissipation by 24 hours, possibly sooner, in the Yellow Sea. The remnant low will track toward North Korea.
Tropical Cyclone 07W (Trases)
According to the JTWC Warning number 1, sustained winds were 30 knots with gusts to near 40 knots.
