Western North Pacific
North Indian OceanTropical Cyclone 04B Here’s what the computer models are showing According to the JTWC, TC 04B is forecast to track west-northwestward through 24 hours, afterwards the storm will turn northwestward. Despite a slow start, the storm is forecast to intensify steadily to a peak intensity of 70 knots by 36 hours, due primarily to the very strong poleward outflow channel. The system is forecast to make landfall just prior to 48 hours and will weaken to 45 knots at this time, due to interaction with land. Thereafter, the storm will rapidly weaken after making landfall and tracking inland over mountainous terrain…with dissipation expected by 72 hours. The remnants of TC 04B may track over the Arabian Sea…although there is a low chance of regeneration.

Tropical Cyclone 03A (Gati) – Final Warning Here’s a landfall video of Gati making landfall The rotating eyewall video impacting the coast Here’s what the computer models are showing According to the JTWC, satellite imagery shows an exposed, elongated low level circulation center, with rapidly decaying deep convection. TC 03A is forecast to track westward to west-southwestward along the northern coast of Somalia through the forecast period. The system will weaken due to land interaction and weak diffluence aloft.
