Typhoon 03W (Hagupit)
Here’s what the computer models are showing
According to the JTWC, Typhoon 03W is forecast to track northwestward through north-northwestward through 24 hours, making landfall over the coast of China.
The system will continue tracking north-northwest to northward over land while weakening rapidly.
After 36 hours, 03W will recurve into the mid-latitude westerlies, experiencing increasing 25-40 knot wind shear, and over cool sea surface temperatures…which will serve to further weaken the storm.
As a result, the system is expected to dissipate by 72 hours, with the remnants tracking over North Korea.
>>> Meanwhile, there’s a tropical disturbance being referred to as Invest 93W, which is located approximately 250 NM east-southeast of Davao, Philippines
According to the JTWC, upper level analysis indicates a marginal environment with moderate to strong 20-25 knot northerly wind shear and broad, diffluent flow.
Sea surface temperatures are warm, and conducive for development.
Maximum sustained winds are estimated at 15-20 knots.
The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is medium.
